Our critical care team save lives but you help continue this lifesaving service.

We were there to help when 13-year-old Ryan was involved in a serious collision with a car, whilst cycling home from school.

Ryan sustained serious brain injuries when his head hit the ground. As he was having seizures, Ryan was put into an induced coma at the scene by the air ambulance clinicians. Ryan’s condition was life-threatening, and his best chance of survival was to be taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

As it was dark and the hospital had no landing pad, it wasn’t possible to take Ryan to hospital in the helicopter. So our doctors and paramedics, along with the land ambulance crew, went with him. Despite the odds, Ryan was brought out of his coma and was eating, drinking, talking, and walking within three weeks. Then, just one week later, he was discharged from hospital.

We’d be incredibly grateful if you could make a donation to allow us to carry on saving the lives of people like Ryan.
