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 24/7

Later this year we are set to enhance our service even further when we will start to fly 24 hours a day enabling us to respond to more patients than ever before. As a Charity we will need to raise £4m a year to fund our 24-hour operations and can only do so with your support!
