To fly the most advanced medical crew and equipment to patients when and where they need it most
Our helicopters and HEMS response vehicles operate 365 days a year, with highly skilled specialist doctors and HEMS paramedics on board providing enhanced pre-hospital care and hospital transfers to patients across the entire North West each year – an area covering 5,500 square miles and over 8 million people.
Since we launched in 1999, the charity has been called to over 24,500 missions across the region, with the service called out an average of three times a day.
Each year we must raise over £9.5 million
We receive no government or NHS funding – it’s thanks to your generosity that we were able to attend over 2,500 incidents last year, making a difference to the lives of many throughout the region.
