We are very pleased to announce that with effect from 4 February 2013 we will be working in partnership with Surrey Air Ambulance.
It is a great privilege to be able to extend the work we do directly to the front line of on-scene medical care. From Monday the aircraft will be carrying supplies of blood to enable emergency transfusions to take place at the scene of serious medical emergencies. The highly skilled team of Doctors and Paramedics can reach emergency situations in any part of Surrey within 15 minutes.
The vital blood supplies will be transported from the East Surrey Hospital in Redhill to the nearby Air Ambulance base for use on board the helicopter.
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance will be the first specialist doctor/paramedic air ambulance team outside London to be able to give blood transfusions and will benefit up to 100 patients a year.
SERV – it’s what we do.
