Midlands Air Ambulance Charity
Saving Lives by Saving Time.
Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties – the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK. Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 50,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK. Midlands Air Ambulance’s three aircraft each carry a crew comprising a pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors plus full life-support medical equipment. Operating from strategically located regional airbases, 90 per cent of the region is within reach within eight minutes.
If a patient reaches hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury) their chances of survival are dramatically increased. That is why the rapid response of the Midlands Air Ambulance is so vital in an emergency situation. Midlands Air Ambulance is fortunate to count on your tremendous public support and good will, but never takes this for granted. That is why it regards the real ‘helicopter heroes’ as not only the aircrew but those often unsung ground heroes, its fundraisers, too. Your micro-donations play a crucial role supporting this life-saving work.
