Northern Ireland now has a new helicopter ambulance, based in County Antrim. The service will be dependent on public donations, reports BBC, and will cost up to £2 million a year. It will be the first service in Northern Ireland to have a doctor and a paramedic on board. Doctors from around the world grouped together to write to Health Minister, Michelle O’Neill, that they were concerned that the service would not have a doctor ready by the time it was up and running.
