THEIR ROYAL HIGHNESSES THE EARL AND COUNTESS OF WESSEX VISIT ESSEX & HERTS AIR AMBULANCE
March 1, 2022
North East London & Essex Trauma Network were guests at a visit by Their Royal Highnesses The Earl and Countess of Wessex to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance’s (EHAAT) airbase at North Weald on Tuesday 1st March 2022.
EHAAT is a local life-saving charity and works alongside the hospitals, emergency services and supporting organisations across the region. Today’s visit was an opportunity to bring everyone together at EHAAT’s new airbase at North Weald, enabling The Earl and Countess to say thank you to some of these organisations for their outstanding hard work during the pandemic.
On first arriving at North Weald, The Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire and Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex greeted The Earl and Countess, and introduced them to Jane Gurney, CEO of EHAAT. Their Royal Highnesses then toured the new airbase, where they spent time with representatives from the local hospitals in the region and then spoke to air lifted patients and their families to hear first-hand about their experiences.
The highlight of the Royal visit took place at the front of the building where people had gathered representing the emergency services and voluntary support organisations, together with the members of the armed forces and many EHAAT charity staff and volunteers. The Earl and Countess took the opportunity to stop and speak to individuals and thank them for the work they do.
Hannah Kosuge, Network Manager, attended the event representing NELETN and said:
“It was a fantastic day and I was so pleased to be able to join in visiting the new air base, seeing many new and old colleagues face to face and celebrating all of the hard work of all the organisations involved.”
EHAAT is one of four pre-hospital providers serving the communities within the North East London & Essex Trauma Network and for this reason we maintain close working links with our EHAAT colleagues; sharing best practice and collaborating on clinical guidance to ensure the best outcome for all of our patients.
