What We Do

Looking at the reflection in a Patient Transport Service ambulance

Providing an emergency response
As the front line of NHS services in Scotland our key role is to respond to 999 calls as quickly as possible with the most appropriate skills and equipment.

Taking patients to hospital
Our Patient Transport Service is a core function that takes patients to and from their pre-arranged hospital appointments.

Dealing with major incidents
During large scale incidents we work closely with other emergency services, hospitals and relevant government departments to save lives.
