Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a charity and relies on donations to keep saving lives. It is not funded directly by the Government and receives no National Lottery grants. It costs £3.75 million a year to keep the air ambulance flying, that’s just over £10,000 per day.
Our paramedics are trained in critical care skills and, together with the specialist medical equipment they use, it enables them to deliver gold standard medical care to patients. We are operational up to 19 hours a day, 365 days a year and is called to, on average, three incidents a day in its helicopter and two Rapid Response Vehicles (cars).
In 2018 the largest number of incidents that Wiltshire Air Ambulance responded to were in the Swindon area (182), equivalent to a call out, on average, every two days. Wiltshire Air Ambulance moved into its new airbase at Outmarsh, Semington, near Melksham, in May 2018, with the official opening by the charity’s Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, on 14 December 2018. From this central site the helicopter can reach anywhere in the county within 11 minutes.
