Closing the services! That must have upset a lot of people. Especially the 190 commuters per hour who misuse the slip road to the lane above!

I am sorry to question this but is it viable to send the air ambulance from thruxton to rownhams when the hospital is so close by via the service rd on rownhams lane?

We know it costs a fortune to run so should be used in the more rural locations?

The air ambulance could have been at The General, and the ride is smoother. I wish him well. I thought that Hellicopter was closer than usual.

The air ambulance is a useable asset and if it was local it can be used for any emergency. I am sure if you were injured you would want the quickest transit to hospital. Too much speculation. You don't need to know all the particulars within minutes of an incident unless you just wish to be critical.

Not at all, charitable trusts are not a bottomless pit. Much like the recent reports on the cost and provision of cancer drugs we have to cherry pick where and what is provided. Real world.

often by time you transport to the copter, take off, land and then be pushed from the heli-pad to casualty I truely believe an ambulance would be no slower.

I genuinely hope the guy recovers regardless of how he got to the general.

For all those questioning the use of the air ambulance, the control room will send out what they consider the be the most appropriate transport to allow the best outcome for the patient. I support Hampshire Air Ambulance with a monthly donation, so, as someone who is paying for the vital service, I am more than happy for them to be sent out when it is deemed the appropriate course of action. 'Issacchunt', perhaps you could help financially so that they can become a bottomless pit and can be there for all who need them.

The likes of issacchunt love to pretend that the emergency services should only exist for those rare circumstances where an emergency is demonstrably absolutely not the fault in any way of the one in peril, for some reason. The entire concept of society is alien to them, although they're quite happy to use all the socialised infrastructure we all pay for.

I fully agree I support it monthly, so it can be sent, I would hate for it not to go and a casualty dies that could of been saved, sometimes they go and are stood down, I don't mind that either,

In this case I'm guessing that once they stabilised him the helicopter would of got thine to hospital in moments that could of possibly been the most important moments of his life.

I do hope he recovers quickly.

Regarding the posts questioning the use of the air ambulance......it is staffed with Paramedics that have extra training in traumatic life support and sometimes has a doctor on board too. They can perform extra skills that assist patients with severe and life threatening traumatic injuries, For example, they can sedate a patient or send them off to sleep in order to help their bodies cope with its injuries. They will also be carrying extra pain killing drugs and if they're not already, they soon will be carrying blood products too. It's not just about transporting the patient to hospital. It's about the skillset of the people on board. Very often the patient still goes to hospital by road ambulance.

A childish insult such as Huey's deserves no better in return. It's all about context, m'dear.
And your "idiotic little girl" insult isn't childish?

1) It has a context. The recipient has a history of making idiotic posts

2) Huey was not the recipient

This is all pretty basic stuff. Huey wants to be some white knight? Wow, big deal. He gets childish insults in return.

I was at the services at 3pm that day and there were some very large, extra long lorries lined up on the slip road. A young man was attaching some wire thing to the back of them. Maybe it was him that was hit!
