CAELUS medical drone project looks to engage

Strathclyde Business School has begun to engage with communities to find out what they think of the innovative CAELUS project which will see aerial drones being used for medical delivery in Scotland. 

CAELUS is an innovative project designed which will position Scotland at the forefront of drone technologies to deliver healthcare supplies to people more efficiently and quickly.

The aim is to improve medical care and equity of care by adding a new mode of medical transport using drones, especially in rural and remote communities - for example, to transport blood products in case of emergency, or chemotherapy treatments closer to patients, or blood samples back to the lab for fast-track testing.

However, the team recognises that there will be concerns and roadblocks with such innovation and the project is keen to hear about them so that they can better address them.

A new Community Engagement Platform has been set up to do this and a group of SBS academics are waiting to find out more about what the public across Scotland thinks of the proposals.
