Hospital doctors head back to roles at Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance after finishing their shifts

More news, no ads


Doctors are finishing their shifts in hospital and heading back to their role with Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

It had been feared the service wouldn’t be able to fly at night during May, leaving missions uncompleted, but crew members, including doctors, are now able to fulfil some shifts.

As a result, the ambucopter can provide around 30% night-time cover this month.

Chief executive Karen Jobling said: “It was absolutely right that some of our doctors returned to support the NHS in coping with the coronavirus where needed and we are so proud of these members of the team.

“We are delighted some of these clinicians are now able to come back to us and provide front line, pre-hospital critical care that helps to saves lives across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.”
