With your help, our highly skilled doctors, paramedics and pilots respond to the most serious of 999 calls. It’s only with you by our side that we are able to continue improving and delivering our lifesaving service to more people each year. Your donation will help us save lives.
We have continued to develop our lifesaving pre-hospital emergency care and are now being despatched to more incidents than ever with the need for our service continuing to grow. When someone is involved in an incident that is life threatening, time is of the essence. If care isn’t delivered quickly and effectively, the chances of survival diminish with every second that passes.
With a highly crew on board the helicopter and critical care cars, we give patients the best chance of survival in what is often their greatest hour of need. The crew can administer advanced life-saving medical procedures, including open heart surgery and blood transfusions. Our Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) Paramedics are trained over a period of five years to become Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) paramedics to ensure they can provide the best care for patients.
