Featured Charity: Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS). We can reach any point in the two counties in less than 15 minutes and on average can transfer a patient to hospital within 8 minutes. We attend around 1,000 missions every year, an average of 3 per day. On average each costing approximately £2,500.
Since our Charity began, over 24 years ago, we have undertaken more than 18,900 life-threatening missions, delivering specialist medical attention to the people of Lincs & Notts in their greatest hour of need. Traveling at speeds sometimes in excess of 200mph, our skilled team of pilots, doctors and paramedics effectively bring the equivalent of an A&E department to the scene of an incident and can transport a patient to a specialist unit or major hospital in a fraction of the time taken by road ambulance.
Our current HEMS team operate 7am–7pm, 7 days a week. By the end of 2018, we will be moving to become operational 24 hours a day. Moving to 24-hour operations will increase costs from £2.5m to £4m every year.
By entering our Range Rover Evoque prize draw your support will help us to raise the funds we need to continue to provide the very best pre-hospital critical care possible, day and night. Together we can keep this vital lifesaving service operating for many years to come.
