He’s afraid of heights, he’s an air ambulance Dr & he’s doing a skydive!

He’s afraid of heights, he’s an air ambulance Dr & he’s doing a skydive!

You could sponsor our very own Magpas Doctor Saad Jawaid, who has decided to jump out of a plane at 13,000ft to raise vital funds for Magpas Air Ambulance!

Saad has been a doctor for more than a decade, and has worked in the emergency department for over 7 years. He worked in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan before moving to the UK with his family in 2012 to develop his career further. Doctor Saad Jawaid currently splits his time between working with Magpas Air Ambulance, forming one of the crucial members of our enhanced medical team, and at Royal Leicester Infirmary. Saad brings his specialist skills by land and by air to patients in life threatening emergencies across the East of England and beyond.

When talking about Magpas Air Ambulance and what he thinks of the charity Doctor Saad Jawaid says ‘It took no time at all for me to become thoroughly inspired by Magpas Air Ambulance. Over the last few months, I’ve attended numerous emergency call outs alongside a critical care paramedic, where we have needed to provide lifesaving treatments on the road side. These patients had little or no chance of reaching the hospital alive, but Magpas doesn't believe that quality care is limited to the boundaries of the hospital, as a result we take A&E level care to the patient.’

The fact that Magpas Air Ambulance relies on generous public donations to continue to provide essential lifesaving care is why Saad decided to take part in the annual Magpas Air Ambulance skydive. He explains ‘the crucial difference we can make has inspired me to fundraise and skydive for Magpas Air Ambulance - despite my fear of heights. It’s just beautiful to know that I’ll be able to pitch in a little for a charity that has been doing outstanding work, and setting the highest standards, for almost half a century.’

You can sponsor Dr Saad Jawaid and help him to provide critically ill patients with his specialist skills and the utmost level of care wherever they may be.

• £14 could pay for Saad to provide a seriously ill patient, who needs to be sedated at the scene, with a shot of Ketamine.
• £20 could pay for a thermal blanket, and as Saad said, ‘Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine is not all about blood and knives. A recent experience of attending a young patient involved in a car crash taught me that a fast heart rate and cold hands can be treated by a blanket, a warm ambulance cabin and few comforting words.’
• You could even sponsor him £55, which would finance the rapid response vehicle our doctors and paramedics use, when it is quicker to get to a patient by land, for an entire day.

Cambridgeshire MP goes orange for London Marathon

Cambridgeshire MP goes orange for London Marathon

PHOTO CAPTIONS (left to right):
Magpas Air Ambulance Pilot Andy Figg with Conservative MP for Huntingdon Jonathan Djanogly and Magpas Helicopter Crewmember Rob Davies

Despite promising himself he would never embark on another marathon again, MP for Huntingdon Jonathan Djanogly, has decided Magpas Air Ambulance is a crucial enough cause to change his mind. When Mr Djanogly heard Magpas is also making plans for a new operations base move, from RAF Wyton, there was definitely no turning back for him! Hence, Mr Djanogly has signed up for this year’s London Marathon; in aid of the charity that trains experienced emergency medical doctors and paramedics, to bring hospital level care by land and air, to patients in life-threatening emergencies.

As a regular runner at the weekends, the Cambridgeshire based MP is used to fitting exercise into his routine - as well as practising martial arts. When he visited the current Magpas Air Ambulance Operations Base (sporting Magpas orange laces in his running shoes), he summed up why Magpas had motivated him to train for the gruelling 26.2 mile mission on the 23rd April. He said, “Magpas Air Ambulance is an excellent local charity run by exceptional people whose specialist skills save lives. They provide vital support to the work of our local emergency services and we must never forget the dedication of the highly trained doctors and paramedics involved”.

Mr Djanogly encouraged as many people as possible to support Magpas Air Ambulance by adding, “The organisation has responded to countless serious accidents and emergencies since its creation. Purely relying on donations and fundraising it needs help to continue providing its lifesaving service. I am running the London marathon in aid of Magpas because the charity is there for people who are in desperate need - and in return we should all do what we can to give our support.”
