Air ambulance crews play a pivotal role in locating patients in hard to reach places in the north and north-east.

Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s major trauma centre will feature in tonight’s latest Channel 4 docuseries – following clinical staff as they demonstrate the life-saving work they do in the most remote locations.

Rescue: Extreme Medics spotlights the Scottish Trauma Network, a network that works collaboratively with hospitals across Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

Film crews tagged along to capture how hospitals are brought directly to hillsides when patients aren’t able to make it to the emergency room on time.

The north and north-east’s geography comprises of mountains and rural countryside and there are many oil rigs out at sea.

And unlike previous medical series that have focused on hospitals in inner cities, rural Scotland can pose complications when trying to get to an injured patient – and we see just how in this new series.
