North West Air Ambulance

With a highly skilled crew of doctors, paramedics and pilots, the North West Air Ambulance provides a life-saving service to over 8 million people in the North West since 1999, undertaking more than 17,000 missions to ensure that urgent medical care and hospital transfers can be given at the first opportunity and increasing patient’s chances of recovery.

Working 365 days a year across 5,500 square miles, this vital service works tirelessly throughout the North West to provides rapid, specialist medical care to those with life-threatening injuries or conditions.  

Flying at speeds of 150 mph with a fleet of 3 helicopters armed with the most advanced medical equipment, each helicopter has a maximum flying time of just 10 minutes to the nearest hospital, giving the critically ill the best chance of survival.

The North West Air Ambulance relies entirely on donations to fund its work and Red Rose Holiday Cottages are proud to support this wonderful service.
