Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulance helicopters and two critical care cars serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands and Worcestershire. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK.
The charity's two critical care cars operate in:
- Birmingham and the Black Country
Each care is manned by a critical care paramedic, who attends cardiac arrests, heart attacks, sepsis and respiratory issues.
Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 60,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK.
The charity's three aircraft each carry a crew comprising pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors plus full life-support medical equipment. Operating from strategically located regional airbases - RAF Cosford in Shropshire, Tatenhill airfield in Staffordshire and Strensham Services on the M5 in Worcestershire, 90 per cent of the region is within reach within eight minutes.
