Story

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) provide the critical care
and air ambulance service for 2.1 million people across the counties of
Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire
and North Somerset.

Our crew attend the most critical incidents across the region by
helicopter or by critical care car. When someone is seriously ill or injured
time is of the essence, and they need expert help fast. This is where we come
in.

The GWAAC Critical Care Team consists of a highly trained and
experienced Pilot, a Specialist Paramedic in Critical Care and a Critical Care
Doctor. From emergency blood transfusions to roadside amputations or treating
cardiac arrests, our crew specialise in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine,
bringing the skills and expertise of an Emergency Department to the patient.

In 2019 the Critical Care Team were called to over 2,000 incidents – our
busiest year to date.  On average we
attend over five incidents every day, but some days it’s many more.

As a charity, we receive no day-to-day funding from the Government or
National Lottery and need to raise over £4 million each year to stay
operational. This means we rely on the generosity of our donors and supporters
to keep flying.

About the charity
