Scottish Ambulance Service Ministerial Review

Scottish Ambulance Service – Annual Review 2017

A fabulous review detailing that we have an Ambulance Service to be very proud of, providing information on many aspects that they are world leading in many areas.

The Annual Review was a great day with many of the usual discussions taking place, we were delighted to be part of the patient/community group forum with the Health Minister Shona Robison and her team providing feedback on the work we have completed with the Scottish Ambulance Service.

As part of the day there was a demonstration of how the new trauma team works in connection with the service and showed the life saving treatment that can be done at the road side for road traffic accidents and many more emergency situations, this is a service that we hope all Scottish Health Boards with adopt as currently its only available in Tayside.

Outside, there was 3 of the new vehicles that are coming into service which have amazing life saving technology which we have no doubt will be a great addition to the fleet.

We would like to thank the Scottish Ambulance Service for the care and support we received from all the staff in attendance at the review.

Thank you to the Health Minister for her time at the patient/community group forum providing great updates from the Scottish Government.

And finally and probably most importantly, we would like to thank all the crews and teams that provide life saving treatment and to the crews and teams providing hospital transportation to all over Scotland

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.
