Our critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots attend an average of ten rescue missions a day and within minutes, they can be on the ground delivering lifesaving care at road traffic collisions, sports events, and industrial accidents or for medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke, or accidents in the home.

The air ambulance gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery. Our helicopter can fly at 185mph and carries the very latest lifesaving equipment.

Our air ambulance team is supported by Critical Care Cars, which provide valuable backup for incidents close to the helicopter base or when the weather makes it too dangerous to fly. It also enables our doctors and critical care paramedics to be run a night car service so that they are available to reach those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

We receive no funding from the government or National Lottery for our daily missions and we rely entirely on donations to raise the £2,300 we need for each rescue mission.
