Funding was also available for motor ambulances, wireless communications with the more remote islands, and the air ambulance.

Horse-drawn Ambulances were in common use. The HIMS Fund offered grants for the purchase of new Motor Ambulances. However the demands of the Military Authorities were given priority and purchases delayed until the 1920s.


This image is part of an online exhibition marking the centenary of The Highlands and Islands Medical Services Committee, commonly referred to as the Dewar Committee after its chairman, Sir John Dewar MP. The Committee's report paved the way for the first state provided health service in the world, the Highlands and Islands Medical Service, which revolutionised medical provision and is considered to be the precursor to the National Health Service.
