Tom is a tree surgeon from Bedfordshire, this is his story

Tom is a tree surgeon from Bedfordshire, this is his story

I was out working one afternoon, 60 foot up a tree cutting branches. It was an everyday job that I had done hundreds of times before. I was halfway through cutting the tree trunk when suddenly my left foot slipped and I rolled onto my chainsaw. I was left dangling in the air and I could see blood dripping from my arm. I literally had 3 minutes left to live.

Magpas Helimedix flew to the scene of the incident. The enhanced Doctor and Paramedic team had the specialist knowledge and equipment needed to save my life there and then. Without Magpas, I wouldn't be here and I want to say a huge thank you.

Please show your support.

Suzanne is a mum, this is her story

Suzanne is a mum, this is her story

I was in a head on collision with a van in Norfolk. I broke both my legs, an arm, ribs, collarbone and toes, punctured both lungs and had a damaged spleen and liver. The police rushed my husband Paul to hospital on blue lights as they thought I was dying.

Without the care I was given by Magpas I believe it could have been a very different story and somehow simply saying 'thank you' does not seem enough!
I owe Magpas Helimedix my life. Had they not been there, I don't think I would be here today.

One day I hope to give something back to Magpas as they gave me back my life.

Sheharoz is from Luton, this is his story

I was quad biking in a field when I was 16 years old and I hit a hidden railway sleeper that was overgrown with grass. I flew 45 feet, I broke my collar bone and was suffering life threatening injuries.

When Magpas Helimedix arrived by helicopter I was unconscious. They gave me crucial A&E level care and continued to treat me whilst flying to hospital.
My family and I are extremely grateful to Magpas Helimedix for being there - my Dad and I want to tell everyone about the great work they do.

Debbie's story

Debbie's story

I finished school for the day and was walking into town with some friends. A car lost control, and ploughed into me on the pavement. I was thrown into the air and impaled onto metal railings. I remember waking up and seeing a spike sticking out of my leg. Three metal railings had pierced my body.

Magpas Helimedix arrived quickly on the scene and gave me the specialist treatment I needed there and then.

I am so grateful for what Magpas has done for me and I would urge everyone to support their lifesaving work.

Kelly-Ann’s story

Kelly-Ann’s story

When I was 9 years old I was riding a pony and she reared up and fell on me. I suffered fractures to both my cheekbones, top jaw and eye sockets. My nose was broken in 3  different places and there was a severe crack across my forehead. Magpas Helimedix treated me really quickly, keeping everyone (especially my mum) calm.

I'm incredibly grateful Magpas was there for me in my moment of need. Thanks to their expertise, I can carry on doing what I love the most; riding horses.

I urge everyone to support the cause in any way possible.

Crucial skills - past and present - secure future and family!

Crucial skills - past and present - secure future and family!

Recently, Magpas former patient 22-year-old Cliff Johnson, marked the 10th anniversary of an incident that happened near Wisbech, which very nearly lost him his life.

New dad Cliff introduced his new family to the Magpas doctor who gave him a second chance at living and who helped him to recreate his future. Without Magpas Dr Rod Mackenzie's specialist skills, neither Cliff or his two young children would be alive today. This meeting comes at an extremely poignant time in the evolution of emergency medical charity Magpas, as the organisation has just begun to provide 24 hour enhanced emergency medical care for critically ill patients in the East of England.
