Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS); providing a free life-saving service for Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Pre-hospital Care Doctors and Critical Care Paramedics can be rushed to the scene of an incident with life-saving equipment and the patient, following assessment, will be taken to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.
It costs over £750,000 per month to remain operational, totalling around £9 million a year. It is thanks to the generous people of Essex and Hertfordshire that we can ensure that the service remains operational. Our aim is to save lives, reduce or prevent disability, or suffering from critical illness and injury, by delivering a first class pre-hospital emergency service to the people of Essex,Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
