Air Ambulance

Plans are underway to provide a new air ambulance service in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland (DLRAA). Fundraising has begun to raise the £1.5 million needed to run the service each year. The DLRAA will use the fastest helicopter available for civilian use, the Agusta 109, which can be airborne in just 45 seconds. From the base at East Midlands Airport, it will take just five minutes to reach Leicester Royal Infirmary and 14 minutes to get to Derbyshire Royal Infirmary. DLRAA will also carry a doctor on board every mission. In many situations, this can make the difference between a life saved and a life lost. For more information, please visit www.dlraa.co.uk
