Welcome to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance
Opperating throughout Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire
Since our Charity began, over 22 years ago, we have undertaken more than 17,800 life-threatening missions, delivering specialist medical attention to the people of Lincs & Notts in their greatest hour of need. Traveling at speeds of up to 160mph, 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.
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. We 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 approx £2,500 and we fly an average of 3 missions per day, 365 days of the year. Throughout 2017 we will need to raise £2.5m to keep flying and saving lives.
This month we will be welcoming a new helicopter – our AgustaWestland 169. There is lots to plan and organise but we will keep you up to date on here.
We are 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 usually staffed by a pilot, two paramedics and 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.
