People in Northamptonshire will get another chance to have their say on proposals to transform East Midlands Ambulance Service at public meetings.

The Being the Best proposals involve the creation of 131 Community Ambulance Posts, Standby points and state-of-the art purpose-built Hubs or ‘Super Stations’.

Phil Milligan, East Midlands Ambulance Service chief executive, said: “We are keen to give as many people as possible the chance to come and hear about proposals, tell us what they think and provide feedback which will help us to shape the future of East Midlands Ambulance Service so that we offer the very best service to the communities we serve.”

East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) representatives will be on hand to answer questions at Kettering Conference Centre on October 24 between 2pm and 3.30pm.

They will also meet members of the public at Northampton Saints Rugby Club in Weedon Road, Northampton, on November 9, at 10am.

An additional meeting has now been scheduled for The Abbey, in Daventry, on December 3, from 6.30pm until 8pm.

There will also be meeting at the Council Chambers in The Corby Cube in George Street in Corby on December 5 from 6.30pm.
