We are the only UK wide charity providing support to all serving and retired ambulance staff, their families, and ambulance service volunteers. The problems we have highlighted can place an intolerable burden on the health and wellbeing of ambulance staff doing what is such a vital and already stressful job.
Our Charity operates as the national Childrens Air Ambulance and the local air ambulance services for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland.
We do not receive any government funding for either of the services and we rely entirely on donations to raise the money we need for each lifesaving mission.
The Childrens Air Ambulance is an inter-hospital transfer service flying babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care. We work with 10 NHS paediatric and neonatal retrieval teams across the UK, enabling them to bring their specialist equipment on board to safely transfer their patients from one hospital to another. If a child is too sick to fly then the Childrens Air Ambulance can fly a specialist team directly to them. With our ability to fly approximately four times faster than a land ambulance, we can minimise travel times and the risk for little patients.
As the official corporate charity partner of Blue Light Card, your local Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance is helping save more lives. Our critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots attend an average of ten rescue missions a day. Within minutes they can be on the ground delivering lifesaving care. The Air Ambulance gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery. We are supported by Critical Care Cars meaning that we can reach those who need us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
