Drones for Highland Health

Drones for Highland Health

Dr Leila Eadie comments for the BBC on the use of drones in rural health

NHS Highland, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Enterprises and the University of the Highlands & Islands, is aiming to explore whether drone technology could help deliver vital supplies to GP surgeries, hospitals and care homes. CRH's Dr Leila Eadie commented on the idea for the BBC's Reporting Scotland news programme, saying, "Drones can deal with bad weather which might close roads, they can drop off much needed supplies in emergencies, and just as part of standard healthcare."

We will look forward with interest to see how this line of research progresses!
