Emergency Care - Sandpiper Bag

 

Following pre-hospital emergency care GP training in May 2013, Pathhead Medical Centre has now been approved for the provision of a “Sandpiper Bag” – a standardized portable and effective immediate medical care kit. New_Image

The bag will be provided by charitable funds raised by the Sandpiper Trust which was set up in memory of Sandy Dickson, a 14 year old boy who tragically drowned in August 2000. The Trust does a remarkable job in raising funds to buy such bags, at around £1000 per bag.  750 Sandpiper bags have now been distributed throughout rural Scotland.

The aim of the Sandpiper Trust is to help save lives in Scotland by improving immediate care especially in the remote and rural areas. The administering of rapid and appropriate medical intervention to a patient during the critical “Golden Hour” contributes to an increase in positive patient outcomes - in simple words – more lives are now being saved.
