East of England Ambulance Foundation Trust setback

The East of England Ambulance Service will not be getting Foundation Trust status after failing to meet response times.
The regulator Monitor has deferred the decision because not enough ambulances which take patients to hospital are arriving on scene within the target time. The Trust's new chief executive says he's focused on getting services to patients right and improving performance.
