Warwickshire & Northamptonshire AA
Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance
reached double figures in 2013 as it celebrated an incredible 10
years of lifesaving work in October.
Formed in 2003, our Air Ambulance has been helping people across
the counties of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, saving thousands
of lives and keeping many families together.
We attend many different accidents from road traffic collisions,
horse riding accidents, sporting injuries and medical emergencies
such as cardiac arrests - to name but a few!
Our brilliant paramedics, doctors and pilots work together to
provide advanced clinical care to patient at the scene of the
accident, before flying them to the hospital most suitable for
their injuries - all in all giving them the very best chances of
survival and recovery.
The speed of the helicopter means we can fly our patients to the
hospital best equipped to treat their injuries, rather than to the
nearest hospital which may not have specialist treatment
Flying out of Coventry Airport, we attend an average of three
rescue missions every single day (that's right, even Christmas
Day!) with the capability to attend even more should the need
Each rescue mission costs an average of £1,700 so we have a team
of dedicated fundraisers working hard across the counties to ensure
that our helicopter remains in the sky.
