New Mission Map brings our lifesaving work closer to home
To mark Air Ambulance Week, we have launched a brand-new Mission Map. The map puts you in the pilot’s seat, giving you the chance to travel through the region and see the impact your support has had in the local area.
The interactive map, which can be filtered by area and date range, also comes with a data breakdown revealing the type of incidents that our doctors and paramedics have been to, as well as whether they arrived by helicopter or critical care response vehicle.
Kurtis Poole, our Clinical Informatics Lead, said:
“At Thames Valley Air Ambulance, we collect data on everything so that we are constantly evolving to provide the best possible patient care. We wanted to share some of that data in our new Mission Map, to give supporters the chance to discover for themselves the impact of our crews in their area.
“Air Ambulance Week is the perfect time to remind people that we are a charity, and we couldn’t do what we do without your support. Seeing the types of incidents our doctors and paramedics attend mapped out in this way shows that, by supporting Thames Valley Air Ambulance, you are helping to protect your community when the worst happens.”
air ambulance week
This week (6-12 September) is Air Ambulance Week, organised by Air Ambulances UK, when air ambulance charities around the country come together to raise awareness of the vital work their teams do, bringing critical care to people when they need it most.
We are joining other air ambulance charities in a campaign called Every Second Counts and Every Penny Matters. Air ambulance charities collectively make an average of over 80 lifesaving missions every day – over 30,000 a year. At Thames Valley Air Ambulance, every helicopter mission costs us £3,750. Supporting your local air ambulance charity will help us to continue bringing hospital-level care to patients when the worst happens. When every second counts, every penny really does matter.
