Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, unlike NHS emergency services, is a Charity providing a free life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.

Specialist Doctors and Critical Care Paramedics 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.

Deployed on average 2-3 times a day, the HEMS Teams are most commonly dispatched to patients with serious illness or injury caused by such incidents as traffic collisions, falls from height, heart attacks, stabbings, cardiac arrests and stroke.

With no direct funding from the Government or National Lottery we rely solely upon the people and businesses of Essex and Hertfordshire to remain operational and keep saving lives. It costs in the region of £6.5 million annually to cover all charitable costs and aircraft operations. We hope you or your loved ones never need us but thanks to the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex and Hertfordshire the service remains operational.
