some people are thick!
if the air ambulance was requested to attend then it was obviously required (or possibly required) to assist with the treatment of a patient at the scene. They are not just there for transport to hospital, they can, and do treat people who need it at scene. GET A GRIP and just hope that if or when u need them they turn up for you regardless of how far away from hospital you are!

no, doctors dont attend out of hospital 999 calls in the north east. That why the public should support the helicopter and its team rather than critisising it.
