Dr John Hinds is known in Northern Ireland as one of the "flying doctor" in Irish Road Racing. John was a consultant anaesthetist at Craigavon Area Hospital and was trained in pre-hospital trauma care and voluntarily gave medical support at motorcycle races in Northern Ireland and several races in the South.
Throughout his life, John campaigned for Northern Ireland to get its own air ambulance. Northern Ireland is still the only region of the UK without this service. Air Ambulances can respond to crisis faster and more effectively than any other type of ambulance- dramatically increasing a person’s chances of survival.
Two weeks ago John lost his life in an accident while providing medical support at the Skerries 100 in Co.Dublin. At John's funeral his family and friends urged people to help make John's dream of a first class trauma network with an emergency helicopter, a reality.
Please add your name to the petition and let's honour John Hinds, who saved so many lives, by helping to save many more.
John Allen, Stephen Henderson and everyone helping with #HEMS4NI campaign.
