The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance responded to 88 emergencies last month.

The crew treated 54 patients who had been involved in incidents ranging from RTCs to falls and assaults, with 27 taken to six different hospitals across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and further afield.

As August arrived, so did a busy weekend for the crew who treated 11 patients involved in seven incidents, in 24 hours. Three of these incidents happened during the night and the critical care team delivered anaesthetics to patients at the scene to stabilise them for safe transit to the nearest major trauma centre. One of those patients – a cyclist – was flown to Hull Royal Infirmary after being involved in a collision with a car in Skegness.

Last night (Wednesday 5 August) the crew flew a patient who had been involved in an RTC in Worksop, to Sheffield Northern General Hospital.

Senior HEMS Paramedic Erica Ley said: “The summer months are busy for LNAA, particularly as people visit the coast and generally get out and about more – this month has been no exception.

“We’re called to the most serious incidents because we are able to deliver hospital care to the scene of the patient, in situations where time is critical. Without our supporters we wouldn’t be able to do this and in this particularly challenging time, on behalf of everyone at LNAA, thank you.”
