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 available.

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 arise.

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.
