PATIENT TRANSPORT AMBULANCE PROCUREMENT

Ambulance Service VISIT TO FALKIRK SCOTTISH AMBULANCE SERVICE DEPOT

In the middle of June, Renfrewshire Access Panel were invited to assess the latest Patient Transport Ambulances in Falkirk, we received the usual very warm welcome from Trevor and his colleagues.

On show were six Ambulances ranging from Peugeot, Mercedes, Fiat each had differences e.g. body sizes, ramps and entrance doors they were designed with safety and comfort of the patients in mind and geographical area where the vehicles were to be based. Every Ambulance was checked by the panel and our comments passed on to Trevor.

After lunch there was discussion on the pros and cons of each vehicle with all groups taking part, we found it very interesting to hear the paramedic’s viewAmbulance Service Cliparts on each vehicle some of the comments raised showed us how highly skilled the paramedics are.

We thanked Trevor and his team for the kindness shown to us and looked forward to working with the Ambulance Service in the future we left for home in the afternoon having enjoyed our day immensely.

OCS & Disability Awareness Month

Today we were working with OCS as part of Disability Awareness Month.  We provided a stand at Glasgow Airport with visual impairment glasses to show some of the many types of visual impairments along with wheelchairs, walking sticks and elbow crutches for people to try out.

To let people understand more about physical disabilities we had bandages to straighten arms and legs to show how difficult it can be to move either with elbow crutches, walking sticks and even using self-propelling wheelchairs.

We would like to thank OCS for the opportunity to provide the information and we would like to thank everyone who took part.

A great day was had by all and we look forward to a long productive working relationship with OCS.

Some photos of the day are below.
