Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance Called to 33 Mission in One Week

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance responded to 33 emergencies last week.

Using the Ambucopter and two Critical Care Cars, our crew treated 23 patients who had been involved in a range of incidents including RTCs, falls and agricultural incidents, transporting nine of them to the nearest hospital.

On Sunday (6 September), the crew were called to an 18-year-old farm worker in Grantham who had been in an accident involving agricultural machinery. The patient, who suffered life-changing injuries, was taken to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

On the same day, the Ambucopter accepted a mission further afield in Derbyshire following reports of a walker who had fallen around 50ft in the High Peak area. The patient received treatment from our crew at the scene, before he was flown to Sheffield Northern General.

HEMS Paramedic Lucy Hutton said: “It has been a really busy week for our crew. We’ve responded to an average of four missions per day, where our crew have provided advanced critical care to those suffering from the most serious injuries and illnesses.

“As a charity, we can only continue to help people with the support of our communities. We cannot thank our supporters enough for allowing us to continue with our lifesaving work”.
