A woman was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by air ambulance after feeling 'seriously unwell' in Halesworth.

The East of England Ambulance service were called shortly after 9am yesterday morning (Friday, April 8) to help the woman in her 60s – who had suffered a medical incident following surgery earlier in the week.

A rapid response vehicle and ambulance attended – with the Anglia One air ambulance landing about half-an-hour later.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said they 'treated a woman in her 60s who was seriously unwell.'

The air ambulance crew of Dr Zoe Smeed and critical-care paramedic Simeon Tomlinson landed in a field close to the scene and gave medication and pre-hospital treatment – before airlifting the patient to Addenbrooke's Hospital – with high levels of monitoring and assessment on the way.
