East Midlands Ambulance Service invests in front line staff and vehicles
Patients across Lincolnshire needing an ambulance to deal with their emergency will soon benefit from more front line staff and vehicles being introduced by East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Over £2.8 million is being spent to bring 140 emergency care assistants (ECAs) into the service by the end of the summer.
They will support the work of paramedics and ensure the most skilled clinicians are available to respond to the most serious calls.
EMAS has also made changes to the staffing of its Lincoln control centre.

By the end of April EMAS will also have replaced or upgraded 55 vehicles.
Phil Milligan, EMAS’ chief executive, said: “Demand is greater than ever before so we are working within the funds available to us to ensure we have the right people and resources in place to respond
to calls quickly and appropriately.
"This means investing in our frontline services.
“These developments support our aim to deliver a modern, fit-for-purpose service.”
