Still Waters Posted June 18, 2022 #1 Share Posted June 18, 2022 (IP: Staff) · Dozens of staff at an ambulance trust claim they cannot drive its £54m fleet of new vehicles due to their height or body shape. Documents reveal a string of problems with converted Fiats, which replaced the ageing Mercedes vans at the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST). The vehicles are part of an NHS drive to standardise its fleet and are being adopted by trusts across the country. An EEAST spokesperson said it had been working to address the issues. The trust brought in a specialist to assess 160 staff members who, due to their height and body shape, had come forward having experienced a range of problems. Ninety-four have now been identified as being unable to drive the vehicles. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-61847310 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
