LNAA
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is one of the UK’s leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) Charities, funded purely by the generosity of people like you! We are not part of the NHS and not funded by the Government.

At a time when every second counts, the arrival of our iconic yellow helicopter really can mean the difference between life and death.

We transport the equivalent of an A&E department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries, providing the best possible treatment as quickly as possible.

This year is an exciting time for the charity as it celebrates its 25th Anniversary and commits to flying 24 hours a day. Since 1994 the Air Ambulance has undertaken over 18900 missions all funded by donations with each mission costing around £2500.
