1.8% of the total ambulance driving staff in Scotland, seen by only 2 of our 5 6000 followers and assisting a service which already has a 96% satisfaction rating, Army ambulance drivers seem to have a greater presence in BBC reports than they do on the streets.
Two visits for jags to big local authority centres and a trip today for a PCR test to an airport facility of some size – not a sign of the Army. I know, a small sample, like most BBC Scotland ones.
And, isn’t that a supply lorry, not an ambulance?
If waiting times for emergency ambulance arrivals are too long, what good are more non-emergency drivers? If we have more drivers capable of emergency driving, surely they could have been transferred from non-emergency driving roles without calling in the Army?
This is a stunt. Wait for the first discharged Army driver to spill the beans in the next few months.
