'Fact or Fiction?'

Lancashire Ambulance Service is currently piloting a very successful telemedicine project in Blackpool. Staff are able to transmit live slow scan moving video images directly from an accident scene and also from a moving ambulance directly into the hospital using GSM technology. Doctors can manipulate the cameras from the computer screen in the Accident and Emergency room so the paramedics can continue treatment without being involved in the process.
