Basildon Hospital's air ambulance landing site set for development
5:58pm Monday 7th April 2014 in Echo News
MORE than half of Air Ambulance landing facilities are inadequate, a new report has found.
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Air Ambulances (APPGAA) has highlighted 60% are inadequate, which could lead to greater morbidity and mortality.
The report was produced by the Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) after the issue was raised at the APPGAA Annual General Meeting which took place in October 2013.
It has been earmarked for development, which will mean a new landing site will have to be sought in the near future.
In any one day, across the UK, 70 people will be treated by Air Ambulances.
