The Scottish Ambulance Service is looking for highly motivated individuals to join our Argyll & Clyde A&E team based on the west coast of Scotland.
This is an exciting time to join the Ser vice. We have recently launched a new clinical model as part of the wider Scottish Government 2020 vision which,
