Accident and Emergency Care

A Paramedic

On average, our crews respond to more than 600,000 emergency incidents every year across Scotland. We operate around 450 emergency ambulance vehicles from more than 100 stations and can also respond with helicopters, if necessary.

As a member of our emergency crew:

  • you will work shifts including evenings and weekends and sometimes on public holidays
  • sometimes you will work in difficult situations such as at the side of a motorway or on a dangerous hill slope
  • you must go out in all weather
  • you will wear uniform or other protective clothing.
