The second summer visit for Fellows will be on Saturday 14th July at 2.30pm. and will be a unique opportunity to visit the “National Risk and Resilience Department” (NRRD) and the “Special Operations Response Team” arm of the Scottish Ambulance Service (SORT). This follows on from last summer's very successful visit to the SE Edinburgh HQ of the Scottish Ambulance Service at the Peffermill Industrial Estate. [More…]

Unfortunately this event had to be cancelled at short notice due to Donald Trump's visit to Scotland.

Visit to Easter Bush Campus

On Wednesday 13th June 2018 at 2pm

Following the recent RSSA lecture by Professor David Argyle, Dean of Veterinary Medicine and Head of School, The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies we are pleased to be able to let you know that the first of this year’s summer visits will be to the Easter Bush Campus at Roslin.

The visit will be at 2pm on Wednesday 13th June and it is anticipated the visit will last between 60-90 minutes. The venue can be reached by public transport. LRT buses 15, 37 and 67 take you directly into the Campus – if travelling by bus X37 or 47 there is a 20 minute walk from the nearest bus stop at Gowkley Moss.

There is a canteen on site that is open to the public and you are very welcome to have a drink there, or even lunch before the visit if you would like. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity to visit the Easter Bush Campus and see some of its impressive facilities, please let the secretary know on secretary@rssa.org.uk who will also be able to send you further details and a map of the site.
