GMB press release
Without the details GMB has requested it is impossible to propose alternatives but this plan as it stands will not work says GMB
GMB has written to the Chairman of the Board of the East Midlands Ambulance Service with a Vote of "No Confidence" in CEO, Phil
Milligan due to the way he is leading the current consultation called 'Being the Best'. See in notes to editors 1) GMB letter of 31st
October and 2) progress of the consultation from 24th September to 31st October.
Colin Todd, Regional Organiser, said 'GMB members are angry and frustrated at the proposal itself and the lack of any evidence to
support claims that this will improve the service to the public. We have said already that we are worried that the changes could put
lives at risk by turning a lifesaving service into a postcode lottery
GMB feel the consultation is a sham and a tick box exercise. We do not want to get to the end of this process and find it is too late to
influence the decision making. Without the details we have requested, it makes it impossible to propose alternatives, but this
plan as it stands will not work.'
