Question ref. S6W-02538

Asked by: Baillie, Jackie, Dumbarton, Date lodged: 25 August 2021

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the comment by the then Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing on 4 June 2008 that "I have also made it clear to the Scottish Ambulance Service that it must take action to eliminate rostered single manning. The Scottish Government's policy is clear: traditional accident and emergency ambulances should be double-crewed, with at least one member being a paramedic, unless there are exceptional circumstances. In too many instances, particularly in the Highlands, practice is not living up to that policy...I have therefore asked the Scottish Ambulance Service to provide me with an action plan demonstrating how it intends to achieve the elimination of single-manning. I expect to receive that action plan by the end of this month", whether the commitment to no longer have single-crewed ambulances has been met and, if not, by what date it will be.
