Fears Over Air Ambulance Night Landings
8:01am 18th May 2014
There is a warning that Cornwall's air ambulance won't be able to land at Derriford at night.
From January it will be able to fly in the dark.
60 percent of its flights are to the Southwest's major trauma centre.
It is because the hospital's landing pad is not equipped.
Tom Matthews from the charity wants the government to step in.
He said: "Helipads at these centres are just as important as road access for land ambulances, because some of the most seriously injured and ill people who go to these major trauma centres arrive by air, because they are in a critical condition.
"The real issue is time, time is running out, the Cornwall air ambulance will start flying in the hours of darkness from early 2015, we need spades in the ground now to start this project, if that helipad is going to be open."8:01am 18th May 2014
