Welcome to

Thames Valley Air Ambulance

On average 3 people every day, will find themselves in a life-threatening situation – a situation that requires urgent high quality medical treatment at the scene before they reach hospital. With your help our air ambulance team, led by a highly qualified doctor, can be there within minutes ready to deliver the same level of care that would only otherwise be found in the hospital emergency department.

We are a Charity and we only exist through the generosity of the communities we serve. Thames Valley Air Ambulance (TVAA) relies entirely on fundraising and donations from the communities of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. We work hard to maximise each and every donation so that our air ambulance service can reach its mission – saving more lives. You can help us to make this happen.

With your help, we can continue to advance
our air ambulance service and save more
lives than ever before
