The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance - delivering life-saving treatment, day and night

At a time when every second counts, the arrival of the iconic yellow helicopter of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) really can mean the difference between life and death.

Covering both Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, last year the LNAA team were called to 1,610 potentially life-saving missions and this year is set to be equally as busy with the crew responding to 147 missions in April alone.

The  crew are called to the most serious incidents ranging from road traffic accidents to agricultural, horse-riding and other sporting incidents.  The doctor-paramedic team are highly trained, able to administer advanced pain relief, carry out enhanced life-saving medical procedures and give blood transfusions. This level of care and the speed at which the pilots can get to patients and get them to hospital is crucial.  This is especially so when patients need to be taken to a Major Trauma Centre, the nearest being either at Nottingham or Hull. In some cases, this really can make the difference between life and death.

LNAA operates a 24/7 service with the helicopter able to take to the skies from 7am until 2am the following morning. After 2am, the critical care car takes over, ensuring that the equivalent of an A&E department can be brought to an incident whatever the time of day.

But this amazing service comes at a price. For each mission costs on average £4,000. As a charity, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance receives no direct government funding and is not part of the National Health Service. It relies solely on the generosity of the hundreds of volunteers, supporters and public donations to keep its helicopters flying and Critical Care Cars on the roads.
