Scottish Ambulance Service #999Crisis

Scottish Ambulance Service

Unite is your voice in the Scottish Ambulance Service.   

We are aware that staff may be facing an increase in pressures at the moment and we want to hear about any impact this might have on your health and well-being. 

Are you suffering from stress and fatigue caused by your working environment? What do you see as the cause?  What are your views about the on-call system; the centralisation of hospital and GP services? Do you believe there is increased workload, lack of cover, lack of vehicles, or lack of staffing?

Do you believe these problems are affecting the service you can offer the public? Do you have sufficient time to carry out vehicle checks, or checks on drug and equipment before going on shift? 

We need your help. We are carrying out a survey of members so that we can bring together information about these issues. The information can be collected without you giving your name – but you can leave us your contact details if you want to.
