East SORT Team Alpha

SAS Special Operations team from East to appear on latest Paramedics on Scene

The Scottish Ambulance Service’s Special Operations Team (SORT) based in Edinburgh will appear on a new series of Paramedics on Scene, which airs on Sunday.

Isla Winnik, Ryan McLaughlin, Luke O'Hanlon, Leigh Law, Graeme Methven and Michael Slater
will feature alongside SAS’s North Ambulance Control Centre (ACC), and Kilmarnock, Glasgow and Dalkeith emergency crews.

The episode features SORT attending to a man who has barricaded himself in his home and is throwing objects at the police officers, and paramedics are called out to two separate cases involving children - one who could be having a cardiac arrest, and another who has suffered a head injury while cycling.

Season Five of Paramedics on Scene is on BBC Scotland at 9am on Sunday and repeated at 8pm on Tuesday. It is also available on BBC iPlayer.
