Scottish medical database for the First World War online

The following is from the Scotlandspeople.gov.uk newsletter

"The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) has just launched an online searchable database, which is likely to be of great interest to genealogists who are looking to trace family ancestors with a medical background who lived in Scotland at this time.
The online database contains over 3,000 records for doctors (including women doctors) living in Scotland who registered to provide civilian cover, or were intending to enter active service, during the First World War. You can learn more about the database, which is free to search, on the RCPE website."
