A Scottish charity aims to raise £750,000 over the next three years to equip doctors and nurses with life-saving equipment.
The Sandpiper Trust, which provides GPs in rural Scotland with medical kits, plans to deliver 175 portable emergency kits by the end of the year.
The kits provide a range of medical equipment for immediate use on accident victims, helping GPs in remote and rural areas.
Scottish GPs have to undergo specialist accident and emergency training and gain a certificate from The British Association for Immediate Care (Scotland) to be awarded with a kit.
The trust has developed the kits in recognition of the "Golden Hour", the critical period between a serious accident and getting a patient to hospital, to increase the chances of survival.
The trust was set up last year by the family and friends of 14-year-old Sandy Dickinson from Perthshire, who drowned in a Canadian lake two years ago.
