The new video features doctors, paramedics and pilots responding to missions across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire together with patient Bradley, 8.
Last year, LNAA was tasked to 1,620 incidents, over 130 more than in 2021. The charity receives no direct funding from the Government and yet they are tasked with delivering this emergency service to increasingly more people each year. In 2022 it cost £8million to keep the helicopter flying and the critical care cars operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week and with increased costs and increased demand this figure will increase in 2023.
Chief Executive Officer, Karen Jobling said: “We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the support of people across the communities of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Everyone who donates to us owns a little part of us and without that help we would not be able to be by the side of patients like Bradley who was airlifted to hospital following a limb-threatening incident a year ago.”
