Geraint Davies has worked for Secamb for 12 years

The outgoing active chief executive of Kent’s ambulance trust has departed today (Thursday) - three weeks earlier than initially planned.

Geraint Davies, who has been installed in the role until Daren Mochrie takes over as chief of South East Coast Ambulance Service (Secamb), has brought forward his leaving date for “personal reasons”.

Interim chairman Sir Peter Dixon said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Geraint on behalf of the trust for not only his hard work and commitment during the last 12 months as acting chief executive but also his wider contribution during his 12 years with the trust.

“I have asked David Hammond, director of finance & corporate services to take on the role of acting chief executive until our new chief executive Daren Mochrie joins the trust at the beginning of April.”

Former chief, Paul Sutton, quit last May after he became embroiled in a controversial scheme used by the trust which delayed sending help to some emergency calls and sparked a major review.
