Support this Excellent Cause

There are thirty-two air ambulances throughout England, Scotland and Wales however Northern Ireland with a population of 1.85 million and 5463 sq miles of land mass is at this moment without an HEMS (helicopter emergency medical service). The Trustees have been working on the  introduction of an Air Ambulance since 2013 and in May 2014, with the support of Minister Arlene Foster, presented a proposal for an Air Ambulance for Northern Ireland.  The public support has been overwhelming since the NW200 in 2015 where a rider and spectator were seriously injured following a near fatal accident were air lifted by the Southern Ireland Coast Guard and taken to the RVH Belfast for specialist treatment. This accident was attended by Dr John Hinds a support Medic at the event who sadly on the 4th July 2015 was fatally injured working as a race medic at the Skerries 100 Road Race in Dublin. Dr John was a huge advocate for the introduction of an Air Ambulance in the Province.
