The chief executive of East Midlands Ambulance Service, which covers Northamptonshire, is leaving the service “for personal reasons”.

Chairman of EMAS, Pauline Tagg, announced on Tuesday afternoon that Ms Noyes would be stepping down in June.

“Sue is a valued and respected member of the EMAS team, and we will be sorry to see her leave. She has made this decision for personal family reasons, and I know she has not made it lightly.

“I have asked Sue to stay on until June 2016, to continue to lead EMAS through the introduction of phase three of our quality improvement programme Better Patient Care – Driving Forward for 2016.

“Sue and I are committed to ensuring that our work continues as normal over the following months. We will continue to meet and engage with staff and stakeholders across the East Midlands as we prepare our long-term plan to secure EMAS’ future.

“In the coming weeks I will be discussing with the EMAS Board and the NHS Trust Development Authority the future leadership arrangements for EMAS,” she added.
