The Scottish Ambulance Service constantly monitors its performance to ensure that resources meet demand. There are no plans to reduce ambulance cover. The North East Division of the Scottish Ambulance Service, which covers Aberdeenshire and Moray, is trying to reduce on-call working by providing full-time resources which will enable it to meet demand and to respond faster to life threatening calls. In the last year, the ambulance service has introduced 24 hour working in Inverurie, Banff and Peterhead.
