“Donkeys and Lions?” 

Perhaps we are not as far from 2013 as we thought…

In 2013 Anthony Marsh wrote a Governance review of our Trust: 


This acknowledged a lot of the issues we faced:

  •  “The senior management team appear to have developed a sense of helplessness.”
  •  “There is a feeling across the organisation that the Trust Board do not listen.”

Return to Parliament

A few years ago a group of EEAST frontline staff travelled to Parliament to voice our concerns over the direction of our Trust. The time has come for a return visit. 


UNISON is funding minibuses for members that want to take part in a demonstration at Parliament to highlight the issue of late finishes.

More campaigners have added their voices to calls for a new national organisation of disabled people that they hope would bring together the “fragmented” disability movement.

The idea is still being widely discussed, even though at least two of the campaigners who had been working on one project, to set up a “disabled people’s union”, withdrew from the scheme after being attacked on social media by other activists.

Dr Sarah Campbell, one of the campaigners who was supporting the project, published a blog this week explaining why she had decided to pull out.

She said she had been called a “traitor” for her previous work on the Spartacus campaign with Sue Marsh, the disabled activist who caused controversy earlier this year by accepting a senior position with the controversial US outsourcing giant Maximus.

Campbell had previously written a blog calling on disabled people to put their differences aside on issues such as social security, social care and inclusion, and unite in a new organisation.

We met with the Executive team this week to discuss the situation and delays to the Student Paramedics training, as a result of the education providers informing the Trust they would not be able to start the education phase of the training as planned, due to difficulties with approval.
