Operational Update – June 2011


Operational Update – June 2011

It was quite a busy year operationally at both bases. The Surrey/Sussex Air Ambulance flew a total of 292 missions and carried 47 patients up to 1st June, this year.Of these, 39% were road traffic crashes and 21% medical emergencies, however whatever the emergency, the skills of our medical teams have made a significant difference to the patients that we have carried, some of whom would not have been alive today, had we not been there.

This is a true testament to the skills of out doctors and critical care paramedics and of course the skill of our pilots who are able to land the helicopter in some of the most difficult places.
