MEET THE TEAM- Jack McIntyre

Jack McIntyre works as an Ambulance Care Assistant and is based in Cupar.

Jack - who joined SAS in 2017 after starting in our East ACC as a Scheduled Care Coordinator - has been instrumental in setting up Proud@SAS, SAS’s very own LGBT network.

 He said: “I have always wanted to join the ambulance service since I was very young. Before joining, I worked in retail then into Palliative and End of Life Care in the community.

 “I enjoy helping and caring for people. I get along with everyone and enjoy working with the public. I knew the ambulance service could lead to many different opportunities.”  

Jack said he has always wanted to join the ambulance service since he was young, adding: “Before I worked in retail then into Palliative and End of Life Care in the community. I enjoy helping and caring for people.

 “I get along with everyone and enjoy working with the public. I knew the ambulance service could lead to many different opportunities.”  

His current role involves taking non-emergency patients who have a medical need for ambulance assistance to and from hospital appointments.

 He continued: “We also take transfer patients between hospitals or take them back home following discharge from hospital. We also deal with urgent admissions into hospital and attending emergencies if we are the closest crew.”

 Speaking of his highlights, he said: “This can include carrying out “out of area” journeys to London & East Midlands. I am also very grateful to be part of the team to set up Proud @ SAS, SAS very own LGBT network set up to support LGBT Staff & Patients.”

 Jack is currently the Vice Chairman and has attended The National Ambulance LGBT Network Conference in Manchester.  

 For people considering a career in the service, Jack said it was a “great organisation to work for”.

 He explained: “There is so many different opportunities in the service. Each day is different and you don’t know how your day will pan out when you start your shift. If you enjoy talking to different people from all walks of life, and the challenge of not know what your shift will bring, Working for SAS is the job for you.”
