This month, the BMA have published an interesting report, highlighting some key innovative projects led by seventeen consultants around Scotland.
The report includes examples of innovations in rural & remote practice, particularly in terms of improving access to services by patients.
Of particular relevance to R&R practice are:
Dr Andrew Inglis – setting up the Emergency Medical Retrieval Service in the West of Scotland.
Dr Peter Terry – outreach O&G Services to the Orkney Islands.
Prof Andrew Sim – R&R surgical services – plus training for trainees who wish to focus specifically on rurally-important skills.
