EDMS have been contracted to provide medical oversight and leadership to the Port of Felixstowe ambulance and Emergency Service. Dr Aaron Pennell took up the post during 2016. The port is the busiest in the UK and the emergency service there responds to medical as well as fire and rescue emergencies. The service has recently undergone a CQC inspection and has passed with examples of outstanding practice. The service is currently recruiting EMT and Paramedic staff. Dr Pennell added “This is a fantastic opportunity for EDMS and we are delighted to work with the service. They are an incredibly highly skilled team and work in some pretty high risk environments”.
As well as being the Medical Director for the Alderney Ambulance Service in the channel Islands this additional role in governance and leadership reflects the key strength of EDMS as a robust and credible resource of senior clinicians. Any enquiries regarding working for the Port should be directed to the Port of Felixstowe ambulance service.
