Brief project description
As a result of NHS constraints, only one ambulance serves the north west of Skye, covering a large area from Edinbane to Portnalong. In order to save crucial minutes, the Dunvegan Crew sought funding for an ambulance car to be used by the second crew member. This means that they can choose to go direct to the in-cident and commence treatment, or can meet up with the ambulance on route.
Anticipated results of the project
The second crew member can now choose to go direct to the incident and com-mence treatment, or can meet up with the ambulance on route. This reduces the time it takes for the ambulance to reach its destination, improving patient safety in a rural location, where time can be critical.
