East Midlands Ambulance Service release details of timeline for yesterday’s Nottingham incident

Understandably due to the ongoing incident and criminal investigation taking place yesterday, EMAS were unable to confirm details about the response EMAS gave to the calls received.

In response to further media enquiries, Nottinghamshire Police have confirmed we are able to share the following information.

East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) received a call at 04.05 hours on Tuesday 13 June 2023. The caller reported a stabbing incident on Ilkeston Road, Nottingham. Our first resource arrived on scene within five minutes (at 04.10 hours).

A second call was received at 05.25 hours to Milton Street, Nottingham. The caller reported people hit by a vehicle – we also received another call reporting this incident. Our first resource arrived at that scene at 05.36 hours.

At 05.39 hrs we received a call to Magdala Road, Nottingham. The caller reported a medical emergency. Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was being performed by police.

In response to all three incidents, we sent a number of ambulance resources to the scene including ambulance cars, double crewed ambulances, our Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), a specialist practitioner, tactical managers, and we were supported on scene by medics and colleagues from the air ambulance.

EMAS transported five patients to hospital via land ambulance.

Richard Henderson, Chief Executive at East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust said:

“Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragic and horrific incident, and I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of those who died.

“I thank all our EMAS colleagues and the responders who attended the scene to help those involved, and those who work away from public view supporting our overall response.

“We continue to work closely with Nottinghamshire Police to support the ongoing investigation.”

The police investigation continues therefore we are unable to release any further information at this time.

Additional note:

EMAS and the wider NHS continue to respond to an increase in demand on services, in part due to symptoms exacerbated by the hot temperate and high pollen count. The public are urged to think carefully about how they access services, visiting NHS 111 online, via 111.nhs.uk, if they are unsure which service to use. If it is safe to do so, people are asked to make their own way to treatment centres via friend or relative’s car, taxi or public transport.
