The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNASS) is a lifesaving healthcare service, operating throughout the North East, North Yorkshire, and Cumbria. They cover 8,000 square miles by operating two helicopters and rapid response vehicles 365 days a year. Their fantastic work is entirely funded by the public.
With specialist doctors and paramedics on board, the air ambulance effectively brings the hospital to the most critically ill and injured people, giving them the best chance of survival.
The surfacing division of Rainton Construction recently completed a project at Progress House, the North East base for air ambulance services.
We met with Facilities Manager Julie Jameson and Paramedic Marcus Johnson who told use more about their roles at GNAAS and had the chance to see one of the helicopters that make up their fleet, the Dauphin.
We donated £1000 from the MGL Foundation Trust to support their critical work, plus two hampers for the team at the charity’s HQ in Eaglescliffe, to thank them for their commitment and dedication to who keeping our region safe.
