New Air Ambulance helicopter for Perth.

There is a new helicopter planned by the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance for Perth. This will be a great addition to Scotland. That by my reckoning gives Scotland 3 Air Ambulances; Glasgow Inverness & Perth. Below is the piece of their website.

WHAT WE DO

SCOTLAND’S CHARITY AIR AMBULANCE SAVES LIVES

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance was established in 2012 to save the lives of those in Scotland by supplementing the resources available to the Scottish Air Ambulance Service.

We will be providing, free of charge to the Scottish Air Ambulance Service, one MBB Bolkow 105 helicopter complete with pilot and paramedic crew. The cost is met through community fundraising across Scotland. There is no Government or NHS financial support.

We will be available to provide air ambulance and HEMS across the whole of Scotland from our base, at Perth Airfield. We will predominantly be servicing the East and Central areas of Scotland.

The helicopter will be fully integrated in to the Scottish Air Ambulance Service and will be routed as part of the 999 Emergency Medical Dispatch Centre.

OUR VISION & AIMS

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance vision is:

‘To deliver a clinically responsive, safe and flexible Air Ambulance Service to the whole of Scotland’

We have identified three core aims to deliver that vision:

  • Respond to appropriate 999 calls using helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) rules where helicopter air support would clinically benefit the patient
  • Respond to emergency, urgent and planned requests from NHS Scotland clinicians where air ambulance transport would clinically benefit the patient in remote, difficult to access, rural and island communities.
  • Respond to emergency, urgent and planned requests from Specialist Retrieval Services to transport teams to and from NHS facilities where air ambulance transport would clinically benefit the patient.

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) is a charitable company limited by guarantee. Registered withOSCR in Scotland SC38496. Charity No. SC04184. Our registered office is: The Control Tower, Perth Airport, Scone, PH2 6PL.

Heading to Clydebank for a lecture tonight and will be down there for a couple of days. DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY!
