The Air Ambulance

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire. The service is operational seven days a week, 365 days a year. The Charity currently attend over 1,000 incidents a year, an average of 4 incidents every single day. Last year they attended 1,858 incidents and carried 416 patients to hospital for emergency treatment.

The YAA currently operates two helicopters – one based at Nostell Air Support Unit, near Wakefield and the other at RAF Topcliffe, near Thirsk. 

To keep both Yorkshire's Air Ambulances maintained and in the air, the YAA needs to raise £12,000 every single day, which is the equivalent of £4.4m a year. The generosity that they receive really is the life blood of the Charity.

The Charity was set up in 2000 and with the addition of the second air ambulance in October 2007, the YAA now operates their own Dedicated Air Desk for rapid dispatch of their helicopters to an incident. The swift medical interventions provided by the air ambulance crews have a major impact on a patients chance of survival and subsequent quality of life.
