Drone services company Wing has partner with UK service provider Apian to begin medical drone delivery services in Ireland and jointly explore opportunities in the UK. The partners expect to begin working with hospitals and other care providers in Dublin later this year.
According to the press release, over the coming months, Wing and Apian will work with healthcare and pharmacy partners to create a rapid medical delivery network in South Dublin. The network aims to leverage Wing’s aircraft and automation to improve the patient experience while reducing traffic congestion and emissions in the community.
Wing’s automated delivery drones are suited to a range of healthcare applications including delivery of pharmacy items, laboratory samples, and medical devices in urban and suburban environments. Apian is a healthcare logistics company founded by a team of doctors from the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). The Apian platform integrates both healthcare and aviation systems, creating an automated, on-demand delivery system.
Wing says its operations require very little infrastructure and can be set up in a range of spaces, making them suitable for a wide variety of healthcare facilities. This operation will be Wing’s second in Ireland, following a public demonstration service in Lusk.
