Cornwall Air Ambulance is called to over 1000 seriously sick or injured people every year across the county and the Isles of Scilly. When every minute matters, we can be the difference between life and death. As a charity, we rely on the public to fund these lifesaving missions. Help us keep the helicopter flying and keep more families together.
Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is a registered charity, established to provide relief from sickness and injury by the provision of an air ambulance service, with an air and road-delivered critical care capability. We receive no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery and rely on the generosity of the public for support. Our operational costs are over £5 million a year and the approximate cost per mission is £3,000.
Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) provides the air ambulance and critical care service for the residents of Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, and parts of Wiltshire. GWAAC’s team of specialist doctors and paramedics attend the most critically ill and injured patients in the South West, saving lives in your local community.
By getting to the patient quickly, bringing the skills, equipment, and medics from the Emergency Department to the scene, our specialist teams are able to perform life-saving surgery on scene. From road traffic collisions to amputations, pre-hospital emergency anaesthetics to emergency caesareans, members of our clinical team are trained to the highest levels in pre-hospital emergency medicine.
1/3 of the incidents that GWAAC’s Critical Care Team responds to is a patient in cardiac arrest. For these patients, time really is of the essence; by bringing the hospital directly to the patient, GWAAC gives the most seriously ill the best possible chance of survival.
Devon Air Ambulance’s mission is to provide exemplary time-critical care. It is our vision to end preventable death, disability or suffering from critical illness or injury. We operate two Air Ambulance Helicopters along with two Critical Care Cars.
