21373 - Under 16 Transfers from NNUH

I was hoping for some information re paediatric time critical transfers; ie transfers of children under 16 by an ambulance to another centre for time critical reasons meaning that a CATS retrieval/transfer is not appropriate. They are usually neurosurgical cases going to Addenbrookes.

Clarification:
The incident address would be NNUH (Colney Lane, NR4 7UY) and the destination address would be Addenbrookes (Hills Road, CB2 0QQ)
Patients 0-16
Calendar year 2018.
