Priti congratulates Essex & Herts Air Ambulance on receiving an ‘outstanding service’ rating from the CQC
The MP for the Witham Constituency, Priti Patel has written to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust (EHAAT) to congratulate them on the achievement of an ‘outstanding service’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The CQC carried out its assessment of EHAAT during August and September as part of its ongoing assessments of care quality and found that the Trust is delivering ‘an outstanding service that is saving lives across the region’. It was also rated as outstanding for being safe, effective, caring, responsive to people’s needs and for being well led.
Priti said: “This is excellent news and confirms my impressions from my own visit to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance’s North Weald airbase in mid-August. I met a very dedicated and professional team of people, whose strong commitment to saving lives was obvious and very impressive. I have written to the team at EHAAT to congratulate them on their achievement in receiving such a high rating. People in my constituency and across the region are very fortunate in having this service available to them in their time of need.”
