Help us keep our helicopters flying

The missions captured in More 4’s Emergency Helicopter Medics are only possible because of our supporters.

Thanks to you, last year we were able to purchase two new helicopters which enable us to get to patients quicker without the need to refuel. Now, we need to keep our helicopters flying and reaching every call-out we receive.

Last year was our busiest on record. 

In 2021, we attended a total of 1,620 incidents in both our helicopters and rapid response vehicles. And this year, we’ve experience a 30 per cent increase in call-outs.

Help us to be there for everyone by donating towards our Fund our Future appeal.

Patient Story: Samantha Sugden

The Great North Air Ambulance Service airlifted triathlete Samantha Sudgen for a second time. 

Samantha Sugden was riding her bike through the Lake District, when she collided with a bus, suffering an ruptured spleen and requiring lifesaving surgery to remove it.

A GNAAS doctor and paramedic team flew to treat her at the roadside, before airlifting her to the Cumbria Infirmary in Carlisle.

The incident occurred just fourteen months after Miss Sugden was first airlifted, when she hit a sinkhole while cycling with friends. The second call out was captured on camera by the Emergency Helicopter Medics team.

Watch Samantha’s story unfold in series three, and tune in to More 4 on Sundays at 9pm to see more stories unfold, or find out more below.
