Transferring a patient to a Scottish Ambulance Service helicopter
Transferring a patient to a Scottish Ambulance Service helicopter
This Eurocopter EC-135T-1, registration number G-SASA, is on the helicopter-landing pad in front of the main building at Borders General Hospital, while staff approach with a patient to be transported to another hospital. Helicopter landings at the hospital may be via Scottish Air Ambulance Service, Northumbria Air Ambulances and RAF Search and Rescue. In the interests of safety and to cover for a potential incident, two Lothian and Borders Fire Brigade tenders are usually in attendance. One can be seen in the background, while another is out of shot to the right. All traffic is stopped (with the exception of police, fire and ambulance vehicles) at the entrance roads and main car park exits while a helicopter lands and takes off. Viewed in March from the flat roof of the main hospital building, with car parks 1&5 in the background.
