We’re doing everything we can to let people know about the huge number of critically ill children in the UK who need an urgent inter-hospital transfer to specialist treatment. The longer a child like Molly is out of hospital, the greater the risk. Our helicopter flies fast and serves as a flying intensive care unit especially for children. We fly about four times faster than transport by road. When every second counts this can be a matter of life and death.
Right now we can only reach one in every three children who need us. Right now, we simply do not have the funding to run more than one helicopter, or to run a 24/7 service. We need your help to reach them all, right now.
On average, two children a day could benefit from our transfer service.
