WF2018 Charity: Essex and Herts Air Ambulance
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is a charity providing Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Each HEMS Team consists of a Pilot and Co-pilot, a Pre-hospital Care Doctor and a Critical Care Paramedic who 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.
It costs £6.5 million every year to cover all charitable costs and aircraft operations. The charity relies on the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex and Hertfordshire to remain operational.
