Wales Air Ambulance incubators 'speed up transfers'

The most advanced flight incubators in the UK for sick babies will be used by Wales Air Ambulance later this month.

The charity said the new technology would provide an alternative to road ambulance journeys, offering significantly quicker transport of vulnerable babies between hospitals.

The service began carrying Babypods for emergency missions in 2013.

New incubators will attach to existing equipment in the helicopter, providing warmth and oxygen.

Critical care practitioner Jason Hughes said it will speed up transfer times.
