Three different countries in one week

The Children’s Air Ambulance covered three different countries last week.

The first of our transfers was the closest to home – from Leicester to Southampton and this was followed by a Welsh mission, from Swansea to Cardiff for our clinical partner team WATCH.

Then we ventured into Scotland for our clinical partners EMBRACE flying from Barnsley to Kirkaldy. This transfer would have taken five hours and 30 minutes by road but we covered it in one hour and 40 minutes.  All of the transfers saved many miles and hours on the road.


Each transfer costs on average £3,500.
