This Charitable Organisation from the Leamington Spa area is one of only three of the UK’s 14 air ambulances which has a doctor on board as well as paramedics. With an ever-increasing callout rate of between 120 and 150 missions per month, it is the UK’s busiest air ambulance service.
This Charitable Organisation is unique because of the combination of the fast helicopter and having doctors as part of the crew. It means that they can take the hospital to the incident, offering critical care and the chance to stabilise the patient before a speedy delivery to the best hospital. This makes the most of the ‘golden hour’, the first 60 minutes after an incident, in which experts say it is vital to deliver specialist treatment to increase the chance of survival. It costs approximately £850 to run one mission. Andy Williamson, Director of this Charitable Organisation, explains why they need your support: “This air ambulance saves lives that would otherwise be lost. But there is so much more we could do. People are dying because our hours are limited. It’s as simple as that. We already have a fantastic amount of support from our local communities, without whom we couldn’t fly. But to reach our aim of doubling our flying hours, we need to find more supporters.” There are many ways you can support this Charitable Organisation from Leamington Spa, from individual fundraising efforts right through to major corporate sponsorship of the helicopter and crew.
