About us

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is one of the UK’s leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) Charities, funded purely by the generosity of people like you! We are not part of the NHS and not funded by the Government.

At a time when every second counts, the arrival of our iconic yellow helicopter really can mean the difference between life and death.

We transport the equivalent of an A&E department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries, providing the best possible treatment as quickly as possible.

care in the air DAY AND NIGHT

We are set to enhance our service even further as we are on call day and night, enabling us to respond to more patients than ever before. As a Charity, we need to raise approximately £7.4million a year to fund our 24-hour operations. We can only make this happen with your support!
