The Chief Executive of London Ambulance Service (LAS), Peter Bradley, has now left his post for a new role in New Zealand. Mr Bradley said:

“Thank you again for all your support over the years and with the Olympics in recent weeks. It has been a pleasure and a privilege working with you all.”

Mr Bradley, who will be taking up the role of Chief Executive of St John Ambulance in New Zealand has also stepped down from his role as National Ambulance Advisor to the Department of Health and the Chairman of the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives.

WMAS Chief Executive, Anthony Marsh, has taken over both of these roles. He said: “We are all sorry to see Peter go, but this is a tremendous opportunity for us to continue his work going forward.”

As LAS haven’t yet appointed a successor, Deputy Chief Executive, Martin Flaherty, will take the lead in London. Mr Marsh withdrew from the recruitment process for the LAS Chief Executive role after being successful with the national ones. London are continuing with their recruitment process.
