YOUR Local Air Ambulance
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) operates and funds three air ambulances covering six Midlands counties including Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, including Stoke-on-Trent, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
Since 1991, we have responded to more than 72,000 missions, making us one of the busiest air ambulance services in the UK. Find out more about Midlands Air Ambulance Charity's history.
Each aircraft carries a crew comprising a pilot, two paramedics or a paramedic and flight doctor, plus full life-support medical equipment. Rapid response vehicles are deployed when the helicopters are unable to fly, due to bad weather for example.
In addition, the charity has a fleet of critical care cars, which operates between 7am until 2am daily by critical care paramedics.
Every second counts in an emergency and on average, our crew arrive on scene within ten minutes, whether by air ambulance or in one of our critical care cars.
The charity responds to some of the most traumatic incidents including cardiac arrests, road traffic collisions and sports injuries. The aircraft reaches remote locations to attend to patients unreachable by land ambulance.
Care Quality Commission Regulated
MAAC is an independent charity and healthcare provider that is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The aim of the CQC is to ensure patients can expect to receive the essential standards of quality while being treated by the MAAC team in the pre-hospital environment. At present, MAAC is waiting for its first CQC rating, which will be displayed publicly once received.
To provide patients with outstanding pre-hospital care and lifesaving intervention through the operation of helicopter-led emergency medical services (HEMS) - we will continue to save more lives and improve survivors’ quality of life through the provision of a comprehensive, transparent, clinical and operational helicopter-led emergency service aligned to changing patient need and demand.
Saving Lives by Saving Time, today, tomorrow and in the future.
