The primary aim of the funds is to cover his medical repatriation costs from Vegas to the UK. These costs are likely to be significant and depend on a number of things: if he is on a commercial or charter flight; how many medical staff he needs to travel with him and the nature of the aircraft and equipment required to bring him back. We will then use any other funds to support his ongoing costs of care.
Sebastian Kola-Bankole is a 35-year-old British doctor who has dedicated 8 years to working in the NHS.
Tragically, he was travelling in the United States when he w
as involved in an accident on Monday 15th February. He is currently at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Centre Intensive Care in Las Vegas where he has had emergency operations on his ears, arteries and spine and is now in a medically-induced coma. He is currently in a critical but stable condition; his recovery will be lengthy.
Despite always previously travelling with insurance, we are unable to find documents for this trip. He has no other resources to pay for his treatment - the cost of which will be well over £100,000. We hope that he will return to the UK as soon as is medically possible, however this may take some time.
We, his friends and family, are trying to raise the money for the continuation of his treatment and relocation to the UK.
Please share with his friends and others who would like to help. Any support is gratefully received.
