Air ambulance in action again at Uckfield

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance has been back in action in Uckfield.

It was called at 4.50pm to take an injured person to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton on Thursday (June 18).

The aircraft landed in a field after it was summoned to a person who had lower leg injuries following a fall. South East Coast Ambulance Service also attended.

The air ambulance had been in Uckfield on June 14 when it took a cardiac arrest victim to hospital in Brighton, using the Luxford Field as a temporary landing space. See here

• The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance costs £6.5 million a year to provide two helicopter emergency medical services to people across the South East.

This life-saving service is almost entirely dependent upon the community, particularly the groups, clubs, business, organisations and individuals who fund-raise on behalf of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

Here’s how you can help.
