Forth Road Bridge Closure

 Tuesday 8 December 2015

Ambulances will continue to travel across the Forth Road Bridge when responding to emergencies. Arrangements are being made to maintain ambulance transport of non-emergency patients to appointments using alternative routes and hospitals, as appropriate.

Our National Resilience team will be monitoring operations on an ongoing basis to evaluate the impact of the closure and maintain patient care. Local teams are working closely with partners at NHS Fife, Tayside, Lothian and Forth Valley to mitigate any potential disruption to services for our patients.
