Ambulance staff in Glasgow have slammed ‘ridiculous’ plans to change their shift pattern and cut nightshift provisions.

Plans have been drawn up to cut the number of crews working the nightshift at the Glasgow South ambulance depot from three to one.

The cuts would mean only one crew serving the area between midnight and 5am, Sunday to Friday.

The changes would also mean a dramatic change in shift patterns for staff, many of who have been working the same roster for two decades.

Crews who work permanent night shifts would be moved onto day shifts and instead of working seven days in a row, would have their week split up.

Concerns have been raised about the impact the new rosters would have on staff who are already ‘at breaking point’.
