  We are very pleased to announce that we have chosen the Helipad Appeal at Nottingham Hospitals Charity to be the new charity partner at The Longhorn. 

Nottingham Hospitals Charity is launching an appeal to raise £3m to build an on-site helipad at the East Midland’s Major Trauma Centre, which is based at Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham

Adam Brooks, Director of the East Midlands Major Trauma Centre, said:

“Our world-class, expert team in Nottingham has saved the lives of over one hundred patients who wouldn’t otherwise have survived, since we became the region’s Major Trauma Centre in 2012. An on-site helipad will ensure our most seriously injured patients, particularly those from remote areas, are transported to our Emergency Department even faster, giving them the very best chance of survival”

The first 60 minutes following a severe injury is known as the ‘golden hour’ and is critical to favourable clinical outcomes. Fast access to treatment is vital to give patients a fighting chance.
