Ken Lay appointed chair of Ambulance Victoria’s new board

Former Victoria Police chief commissioner Ken Lay has accepted a two-and-a-half-year appointment chairing the new board overseeing Ambulance Victoria.

A statement released today from Minister for Ambulance Services Jill Hennessy confirmed the selection of the remaining board positions is underway. Lay will be involved in the final selection process, with the full board expected to be in place by the end of the year.

The previous Ambulance Victoria board was replaced with an administrator after the Andrews government came to power. The newly established Ambulance Performance and Policy Consultative Committee is finalising its recommendations to improve the service performance and culture of Ambulance Victoria. The committee’s report is due before the end of the year.
