Developing a better ambulance service

ambThe Scottish Ambulance Service is consulting health organisations, the public and others, on how to develop its services for the future.  In particular, there is a specific focus on how to improve services in remote and rural areas.

The RCGP Rural Forum is submitting a response, with input from many remote and rural practitioners via the RCGP Remote & Rural Yahoo Group (see the banner on the right for details), including experiences of different types of transport for patient transfer.  However, individual submissions are also welcome.  The “Our Future” section of the SAS website has all the documents, and also web-based feedback forms.
