Air Ambulance Key Part of 20% Increase in Patient Survival Rates

2013.04

The Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) has welcomed today’s announcement of an independent audit that shows 20 per cent more patients are now surviving severe trauma since the introduction of Major Trauma Networks in 2010. Air ambulances, which receive no direct Government funding, invariably provide the principle means by which a very seriously injured patient will be treated at the scene of an incident and then conveyed to the Major Trauma centre for further treatment.

We Need to Pass Amnesty to Find Out What’s In It?

The subject says it all. Late last week Senators Corker and Hoeven introduced an amendment to the S.744 Amnesty Bill. This “amendment” which is over 1,000 pages long essentially replaced the entire bill. Now, the Senate is set to vote for cloture on the “NEW Amnesty Bill” this evening around 5:30pm edt, which means they are voting to end debate.

Betrayal

B1833

The eagerly awaited paperback edition of the most recent Stockwin story both provides a lower cost edition and reminds readers that the next story, to be published first in hard back, is only months away.

This latest story in the series, following the fortunes of the Kydd and Renzi characters, is also available as an eBook. The author has already broken the mould for fictional stories set in the Nelsonian era by striking out into the rush for Empire era that was to become the strong feature of the Victorian age. An amazing story for such a small group of islands off the coast of Europe and their modest population.
