Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, unlike NHS emergency services, is a charity. It brings the hospital to the critically ill and injured patients of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. The free life-saving service is provided 24/7 by helicopters and by rapid response vehicles in the hours of darkness.
Each critical care team consists of a pilot and co-pilot, a pre-hospital care doctor and a critical care paramedic who can be rushed to the scene of an incident with life-saving support equipment to deliver advanced clinical care that is normally only found in the hospital emergency department. Once stabilised, the patient will be conveyed by air or land to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.
It costs £9 million every year to cover all charitable costs and aircraft operations. Without access to National Lottery funding and with only limited support from Government, we rely upon the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex and Hertfordshire to remain operational and keep saving lives...we can’t fly without you!
