26 members attended at various stages during the meeting. Sam Riddell gave a presentation which gave an interesting insight into the very important role and work of the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA).
It currently runs 2 helicopters. Sam explained how it was organised and how it runs alongside the government system.
