About Wales Air Ambulance

Wales Air Ambulance delivers lifesaving, advanced medical care to people across Wales, whenever and wherever they need it. 

The Wales Air Ambulance is your charity – it is funded by the people of Wales! 

We are the only air ambulance charity based in and dedicated to the people of Wales and rely entirely on your charitable donations to keep the helicopters in the air and rapid response vehicle on the ground.

Since our inception on St. David’s Day, 1 March 2001, our Charity has attended over 43,000 missions. With bases across Wales, we operate some of the most advanced air ambulances in the UK, saving precious time and lives – all thanks to the people of Wales.

Our on-board consultants and critical care practitioners are highly skilled and carry some of the most pioneering medical equipment in the world. They can deliver blood transfusions, administer anaesthesia and undertake emergency operations at the scene of the incident, before flying the patient directly to specialist care.  Proceeds from the trail will enable us to continue serving Wales and saving lives.

We are your Charity.

How we helped Mark Kempsell

Mark Kempsell was involved in a head-on collision with a pick-up truck, throwing him approx 25 feet from the accident site.

When the Wales Air Ambulance crew arrived they gave Mark strong intravenous medication for pain relief and had to manipulate his left leg back into the correct position and placed it into a splint.

Mark said: “Given the extent of my injuries and the location, I needed emergency treatment. Wales Air Ambulance brought the hospital to me. They were able to administer treatment and transport me to hospital within a short space of time. If there had been no air ambulance here, I wouldn’t have survived or at least the risk of further injury would have dramatically increased.”
