EMAS chief executive appointed

The chairman of East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS), Jon Towler, has appointed a new chief executive to lead the organisation.

Sue Noyes is a successful and committed leader with over 20 years’ experience in the NHS. She has worked in a variety of organisations across the East Midlands health community, delivering financial plans and performance targets, as well as taking a wider interest in care delivery, with a period as acting chief executive in Lincolnshire.

Chairman, Jon Towler said, ‘Sue brings with her a proven track record in changing the culture of organisations to get the best out of people. I’m sure that, with mine and the board’s support, she will help EMAS reach and exceed its targets as well as providing an excellent service to the people of the East Midlands.’

The previous chief executive for EMAS, Phil Milligan, resigned in August following a challenging year for the service.

After nearly two years in the post, Milligan said the role had been ‘demanding’ and he was ‘proud to leave the service in a much stronger position.’

Sue Noyes began her role at EMAS on Tuesday 15 October 2013.
