Scilly is a remote archipelago off Cornwall’s south west coast. These beautiful islands can be reached by air or sea, and their remote location and wild beauty ensure that they attract scores of visitors throughout the year. Unfortunately, it’s this same remote location that could put you at risk if you suffer personal injuries on the Isle of Scilly. You may need to be transported by air ambulance to the nearest hospital or trauma centre if you’re injured, and the treatment you receive before you reach hospital could be critical.
