Northern Ireland’s first children’s ambulance launched

Kitted out with features to entertain children with heart disease on long and often anxious journeys as well as life-saving equipment, it has been dubbed by one five-year-old from Lisburn as his “battleship”. Work ahead of the launch of the bespoke vehicle has been ongoing since 2020 by the charity, the Children’s Heartbeat Trust, which supports families of children with heart disease.
