North-West-Air-Ambulance-CharityThe North West Air Ambulance Charity is a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) that delivers clinical expertise when and where it’s needed most. With three aircraft covering the region, our highly experienced clinical teams respond to patients who have suffered life-changing injuries, serious medical emergencies or are in hard to reach locations. We are here every day for our patients and attend an average of six missions per day.
Three helicopters operate 365 days a year, covering an area of 5,500 square miles and nearly 9 million people, a population the same as London, yet a much greater area. This is a challenge but our highly experienced clinical teams are experts at responding to patients. Our teams are activated during 999 calls or through land ambulances requesting the enhanced support that our experienced clinical team can offer a major trauma incident. Simply put, the North West Air Ambulance Charity brings the emergency department to the end of everyone’s street.
