Rural innovation by consultants in Scotland


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.
