The Air Ambulance Service operates the national Children’s Air Ambulance and the local air ambulance services for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, flying critically ill children from one hospital to another for specialist care. This is the first and only dedicated paediatric helicopter emergency transfer service in the country. The bespoke, specialist equipment on board provides a flying intensive care unit for children. When a child is too sick to fly, a specialist team is flown to them. With flight times commonly over four times quicker than transfer by road, in many cases, time saved is a life saved.
Founded 15 years ago as a charity with a small number of staff and volunteers, the Air Ambulance Service (The Charity) has grown to become a large organisation that creates big impacts. The staff of over 350 work tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the organisation and help critically ill or injured patients to reach specialist care.
The charity flies two local air services serving five counties: Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. The charity lives out their core values of compassion, and courage through their prompt service. Two helicopters provide prompt responses to major medical emergencies covering an area of nearly 4000 square miles and having an average response of just 13 minutes.
