Magpas Air Ambulance Today

magpas44

Magpas Air Ambulance brings crucial lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond. Some of the UK’s expert doctors and paramedics volunteer their own time to work with Magpas Air Ambulance. They support the ambulance service and give advanced medical care when time is of the essence.

The Magpas Air Ambulance medical team receives enhanced training which allows them to offer procedures and treatments at the scene, like general anaesthetic, which are usually only available in hospital. This means that the frontline care the team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people return to a good quality of life.

Magpas Air Ambulance is not a state-funded service and relies on generous public donations to continue saving lives.

The charity is based in Cambridgeshire and is activated to emergency medical incidents, using either the air ambulance or a rapid response vehicle, across 9 other counties – Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, and London.

Magpas Air Ambulance started life as a voluntary service in 1971 when two GPs, Dr Neville Silverston MBE and Dr Derek Cracknell MBE, took action to help victims of road accidents.

As it was founded by two doctors, the charity has a strong clinical heritage. Today, it offers pioneering training to doctors and paramedics wishing to specialise in pre-hospital emergency medicine, for which it is renowned in the medical world.
