A BARNSLEY-BASED team who transfer sick children to hospitals around the country are on the BBC tonight!

Embrace - who are part of Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust - will star in Children's Emergency Rescue, a three-part documentary.

Based near junction 37 of the M1, the paediatric transport organisation transfer ill youngsters to specialist units using mobile intensive care units, planes or helicopters.

The support of The Children’s Hospital Charity was a key factor in the development of the Embrace service, which was launched in 2010.

David Vernon-Edwards, director at The Children’s Hospital Charity, said: "Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we've been able to support the hospital in the development of the Embrace transport service."
