Aintree University Hospital has received approval for the construction of a helipad. The helipad, costing £1 million, has been funded by the charity HELP Appeal. There are conditions they have to adhere to though, such as taking measures to ensure noise reduction in residential areas, reports Liverpool Echo.
The helipad will save valuable time for trauma patients, as now they don’t have to be transported to Lower Lane playing fields, then transported by ground ambulance to the Urgent Care and Trauma Centre. This trip can take up to 30 minutes.
