A Letter from Nantwich

October 2015  (Updated)

Real-life emergency, not a spectator event

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The air ambulance takes off from Barony Park, with the land ambulance - and spectators of the transfer - at a safe distance.

THE work of the air ambulance service is clearly shown in a spectacular display on Barony Park, Nantwich.

   But this is not a demonstration at a public event - despite the line up of spectators. This is a real-life emergency.

   As the North West Air Ambulance charity craft landed on the football pitch at the park, a land ambulance was waiting with a patient - a man in his 80s with a suspected leg injury.  

   After he was transferred to the air ambulance the helicopter took him to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

l Between April and July this year the air crews were involved in 142 missions in Cheshire - and 579 in the whole North West area.

   For more information about what the charity does - and how you can help - visit the website www.nwaa.net.
