Who We Are

We provide life-saving medical care across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Each day, an average of three people will find themselves in a life-threatening situation that requires urgent, high-quality medical treatment.

It costs £2.2 million to keep us flying per year. When you or your loved one’s life is at risk we will deliver unique life-saving service to you wherever and whenever you need it.

We receive no Government funding and are not supported by the National Lottery. Your support will help keep us flying night and day, 365 days a year, and we are able to deliver our unique life-saving service to patients where and when it is most needed.
