A former chief executive of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn has been appointed permanent boss of the East of England Ambulance Trust (EEAST).

The appointment of Dorothy Hosein (pictured)

as permanent chief executive followed an external recruitment process, an EEAST spokesman said.

Mrs Hosein had been the trust’s interim chief executive since last November. Before joining EEAST, she was at the Lynn hospital and previously at the Mid-Essex Hospital. 

Mrs Hosein said she was  “delighted” to be joining EEAST on a permanent basis.
