Thames Valley Air Ambulance
We bring the hospital to the roadside.
With a helicopter, car, and highly qualified crew, Thames Valley Air Ambulance provide expert medical care at the scene of an incident.
On an average day Thames Valley Air Ambulance attend three people, who are all in critical need of medical treatment. The charities skilled crew use the advanced medical equipment onboard to start treatment before the patient is taken to hospital.
The service is operational from 7:00am to 2:00am, every day of the year, throughout Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
All of this is done without any government funding. Instead Thames Valley Air Ambulance rely on the generosity of the public to keep us going.
Don't just take our word for it
Since my incident, it has been a long, slow and painful recovery - one that is a struggle every day, but one that I am so happy to be going through.
I know that Thames Valley Air Ambulance saved my life. Had I been transferred by land ambulance the likelihood is that I would probably have died on the journey.
I now volunteer for the charity and I am doing what I can to raise as much money as possible. I just want to say thank you to the crew and to everyone who supports Thames Valley Air Ambulance. From large donations, to donating your old clothes in the BIU clothing banks - I owe my life to you.
