Motorcyclist, Andre, sustained life changing injuries when he was involved in a collision with a car in September 2018. Andre was riding his motorcycle, near Kettering, when a car suddenly pulled out in front of him and he had no time to stop.

A land ambulance arrived at the scene and soon after Andre remembers seeing the helicopter in the sky above him.

The critical care crew from your local air ambulance gave Andre a ketamine injection – a pain relieving drug that most land ambulance crews are not able to administer.

The additional training of our critical care teams means they can administer specialist medication to patients where usually this type of treatment is only given in hospitals. This dramatically increases a patient’s chance of survival and makes a difference to their comfort, treatment and recovery.

It took just 13 minutes to fly Andre to the nearest major trauma centre in Coventry.

The life changing injuries he suffered included two broken vertebrae in his neck, a shattered left knee cap, deep scalp lacerations that needed over 100 stitches, a broken nose and a stroke. He spent 14 days in hospital.
