Welcome to Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance
Your local Air Ambulance operating throughout Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire
Saving Lives Everyday
Since our Charity began over 22 years ago we have been called upon for more than 17,200 missions, bringing specialist medical attention to the people of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire in their greatest hour of need. Traveling at speeds of up to 160mph, our skilled team of 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.
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service.
We hope this National Air Ambulance week (NAAW) you’ll show your support for our charity. From 19 – 25 September members of the Air Ambulance Association (AAA) all around the country will be uniting in their fundraising and awareness activities, giving the life saving charities one national voice for a week. Find more out here: www.ambucopter.org.uk/naaw/
Our helicopter can reach any point in the two counties in less than 20 minutes and on average can transfer a patient to hospital within 8 minutes.
Each mission costs over £2100 and we fly at least 3 per day, every day. Each year we need to raise £2.1M to keep flying and saving lives. Recently we’ve announced that at the end of 2016 we’ll be leasing a new helicopter; the AW169. There’s lots to plan and organise. We’ll keep you up to date on here.
We’re based at RAF Waddington, south of Lincoln. This base is unaffected by road congestion, country roads, heavy vehicles or road works. Our Helicopter, affectionately known as our ‘Ambucopter’, is fully equipped for almost any medical emergency. It is permanently staffed by two paramedics and occasionally a doctor.
Every year we are called upon for approximately 1,000 missions. Each year the generous people of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire help us raise the money to do this!
Please continue to spread the word, organise fundraisers, play our lottery, volunteer your time and donate to our 11 charity shops across the counties. Together we can keep this vital lifesaving service operating for many years to come.
