Lifesaving care by land, by air
Magpas Air Ambulance brings specialist lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond. Some of the UK’s expert doctors and paramedics volunteer their own time to work with Magpas Air Ambulance. They support the ambulance service and give advanced medical care when time is of the essence. The medical team receives enhanced training which allows them to offer procedures and treatments at the scene, like general anaesthetic, which are usually only available in hospital.
This means that the frontline care the team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people return to a good quality of life. Magpas is based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire and is activated to emergency medical incidents, using either the air ambulance or a rapid response vehicle, across 12 counties. They rely on generous public donations to continue saving lives, and micro-donations made by MRH customers at participating roadside retail sites in East Anglia are helping to fund this vital work.
