Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance will feature in Trauma: Level 1, a new observational documentary series set on the frontline of trauma medicine, to be broadcast on ITV on 3rd and 10th September at 9pm. With access to the specialist Trauma Centre at University Hospital Southampton, the series is based around the powerful, emotional stories which reveal the fragility of life and the intensity of the fight to preserve it. The series is produced by October Films, a leading British Independent Film and Television production company, based in London.
Trauma: Level 1 takes a behind the scenes look at the workings of the specialist Trauma Centre at University Hospital Southampton, and shows how the crew of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance interact with the centre on a daily basis. Through interviews with paramedics, and scenes from life saving missions, we are offered a rare insight into the day to day operations of the Air Ambulance crew. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance paramedics are filmed working at the scene of an incident and subsequently handing over the patient to the trauma team.
