Bristol Breakfast Speaker – Fiona Franklin – Children’s Air Ambulance
Children’s Air Ambulance (Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire and Somerset)
The Children’s Air Ambulance is an inter-hospital transfer service flying babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care. We work with 11 NHS paediatric and neonatal retrieval teams across the UK, enabling them to bring their specialist equipment on board to safely transfer their patients from one hospital to another. If a child is too sick to fly, then the Children’s Air Ambulance can fly a specialist team directly to them. With our ability to fly approximately four times faster than a land ambulance, we can minimise travel times and the risk for little patients. We flew our first mission in 2012, this year, is our 10th anniversary. Each mission costs £3500, we receive no government funding; we rely solely on the generosity of the general public and business to keep us in the air and flying to save lives.
