- How you can help
I originally joined the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance, but am now settled at the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire airbase as a critical care paramedic. I enjoy being part of the air ambulance team, as it makes such a difference to many people’s lives.
I joined the ambulance service in 2006 in Northamptonshire and trained as a Paramedic in 2008. In 2015 I gained a BSc in Professional Practice in Pre-Hospital Care. I am excited to join the Air Ambulance Service to improve my clinical skills, be part of a great team and continue to care for people that need help. Outside of work I enjoy socialising and DIY.
I joined The Air Ambulance Service in September 2008 as a critical care paramedic, and I work for my local ambulance service in Derbyshire. It’s a privilege to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to ensure patients get the best possible pre-hospital care.
I’ve been a critical care paramedic with The Air Ambulance Service since 2008. I enjoy the challenges we face and find it very rewarding when the small part we play in their treatment makes a difference.
After qualifying as a paramedic I spent several years working for the ambulance service in Leicestershire and as part of specialist response teams across the region. Since joining The Air Ambulance Service two years ago, I have enjoyed the challenge of bringing critical care to the patients who need it most across the region. I feel particularly privileged to do so in a service which is funded through the hard work of our volunteers and the generous donations of the public.
I have been with Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance since 2011 and enjoy every minute. Previously I was an ambulance paramedic based in Nottinghamshire. I enjoy keeping fit and recently ran the London Marathon on behalf of the charity.
Paul is a critical care paramedic working on the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. He enjoys the team work involved in the challenging role of pre-hospital critical care.
I’m a critical care paramedic on the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and love my job because we can offer a high level of pre-hospital care to patients and get to them quickly. I relax by spending time with my family, cycling and watching sport.
I joined Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance in 2006 and am now one of the clinical supervisors. I am a consultant in emergency medicine at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire and the West Midlands Training Programme Director for PHEM (Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine).
I was in the RAF for 16 years and involved in pre-hospital care for 11 years, serving as an instructor and an examiner. Previously I was a member of the medical emergency response team in Afghanistan and I am currently SO2 Aeromed, providing clinical authority for all military aeromedical patients worldwide.
I fly regularly on the helicopter and act as one of the clinical supervisors, though my main job is as a principal in general practice. I also act as one of the medical incident advisors for East Midlands Ambulance Service and respond for our local BASICS (British Association for Immediate Care) scheme.
I’m a senior medical officer in the British Army, based in the East Midlands. I joined the team in 2013 and have been involved in missions almost every week since then. I don’t want anyone to be in a position to need The Air Ambulance Service, but I’m glad that we can be there to help when we’re needed.
I am a consultant anaesthetist with a special interest in the care and resuscitation of trauma patients and have flown with The Air Ambulance Service for four years. The Air Ambulance Service has an amazing group of highly motivated paramedics doctors and pilots who, together with the fundraising staff, provide a first-class service.
I’m the clinical lead for the local air ambulance and have been with Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance since 2003. I’m committed to providing the best possible care for our patients and ensuring they receive the treatment they need as quickly as possible.
I’m one of the charity’s longest serving members of staff, having joined in 2008. As well as being a critical care paramedic, I am also the airbase manager at Coventry which means I have the challenge of managing the day-to-day running of Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Children’s Air Ambulance.
I’ve been with the charity since 2010 working as a paramedic – I enjoy this role because I work alongside experienced paramedics and doctors delivering intensive care treatment in the pre-hospital setting. I’m also the Head of Operations, meaning I have the challenging role of ensuring clinical and operational side of our organisation runs efficiently.
I’ve been an air ambulance pilot since 2011 and am now the senior line pilot for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. My role involves training new pilots and crew. I love being able to land in challenging situations, having previously been a freelance helicopter pilot specialising in motorsport and filming.
I’ve been a pilot for 13 years and joined the team in May 2014, having spent the last 8 years flying VIPs throughout the UK for the aviation arm of Harrods. I’m enjoying my new role as part of a tight-knit team of professionals providing an essential service.
I am chief pilot for our aviation provider, Sloane Helicopters, and consider this to be the best job I’ve ever had in aviation. I could quite happily fly air ambulance helicopters until I retire. I love working closely with the medical crews and doing something that makes the job feel worthwhile.
