Scoltland use large drone to collect and delivery medical
The UK government’s invest £26.5 million cooperation with UK-based drones company DTLX to collection and delivery of NHS medical supplies and samples using large drones in an effort to improve current transportation methods.
Drones will operate to and from multiple healthcare facilities between Angus and Dundee assisting with the response to Covid.
‘This level of improvement could potentially allow life-saving treatment to be able to commence earlier by reducing testing times, speeding up diagnoses for patients, all at a reduced cost to the NHS by reducing the reliance on expensive taxi transportation that currently exists,’ said Fairweather.
‘Drones have huge potential in Scotland, from connecting health services to remote communities, to helping maintain renewable energy installations, to assisting with Scottish aquaculture and environmental monitoring,’ said Stewart.
UK government is supporting the use of drones in the west of Scotland at Oban to improve services in communities across Scotland.
Mercury Drone Ports will be based within the ZeroFour Hub, a 123-acre commercial development site near Montrose. The new hub, along with the drone port, forms part of Angus Council’s long-term plans to create renewable solutions for transportation and energy across Angus and the wider Tay Cities region.
