Air ambulance crews had one of their busiest days last week with five serious 999 calls last Tuesday.
The final call of a hectic shift was to a motorcyclist injured in a crash at Gedney Hill.
The day’s crew of Chief Pilot Paul Smith, co-pilot Llewis Ingamells, paramedics Neil Clarke and RIch Irwin along with Dr Dave Cookson started the day at RAF Waddington as usual.
The first call was at 8am to a road crash in Nottinghamshire, followed by a call to Lincoln to a patient with chest and back pain.
Time for a debrief at base before heading to Walcott, near Sleaford, to a cyclist.
Another call was to a road collision near Grantham.
The call to Gedney Hill came in at 4.44pm to the patient with head and leg injuries. Police closed the road to allow the helicopter to land nearby. The patient was transferred to the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham.
