The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance was drafted in to help with an emergency situation at a golf course in Northampton at the weekend.

The air ambulance received the emergency call at 10.30am yesterday (Sunday) after a man suffered a ‘medical emergency’ at a golf course in Northampton.

WNAA said it could not reveal the exact location of the golf course due to patient confidentiality.

The ambulance landed at the scene within 14 minutes from the initial call.

Doctors on board worked with East Midlands Ambulance Service to treat the patient who was in need of urgent care.

The ground conditions around the patient were boggy, making access for the land ambulance difficult.

A spokesman for WNAA said: “WNAA’s crew packaged the patient for flight to a nearby landing site, where they met a second land crew who transported the patient to Northampton General Hospital.

“The patient’s current condition is unknown.”
