Recognition for East Anglian Air Ambulance trio
Since the Charity’s launch in 2000, the dedicated, highly skilled medical crews on their specially equipped helicopters have helped to save the lives of hundreds of people unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents or medical emergencies in this region.
He has played an important part in the EAAA’s development and attended hundreds of patients over the years and is very hands on, often helping out the clinicians on scene.
"It is a wonderful thing to end a day’s work knowing that you’ve made a difference to someone’s life," Steve explained.
He forms part of the clinical team on board the helicopter and has attended some of the most critically ill and injured patients in the region.
Carl's advanced training means that he can give advanced lifesaving treatment to critically ill injured patients.
In addition to working for EAAA, Carl spends much of his free time volunteering for the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) and has also been a retained fire-fighter for nearly 20 years.
She is a vital link between the EAAA’s patients and the critical-care clinicians who have treated them, with meeting the clinicians often being an important part of a patient’s recovery.
EAAA has to raise £10.2 million a year to maintain the lifesaving service, which is raised largely through local community fundraising.
