Every day of the year, The Air Ambulance Service is helping save more lives, in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Warwickshire & Northamptonshire. Our critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots attend an average of five rescue missions a day.
Within minutes they can be on the ground delivering lifesaving care at road traffic collisions, sports events, and industrial accidents or for medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke or accidents in the home.
The air ambulance gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery. Our helicopter can fly at 185mph and carries the very latest lifesaving equipment.
Our air ambulance team is supported by a Critical Care Car, which provides valuable backup for incidents close to the helicopter base or when the weather makes it too dangerous to fly. It also enables our doctors and critical care paramedics to be run a night car service so that they are available to reach those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The charity receives no government funding and we rely entirely on donations to raise the £1,700 we need for each rescue mission.
Your support will help keep us flying.
