We can now move forward with the service improvement development which includes the creation of a new base. We believe this will be achievable within the next few years. 

This is the start of a journey to reduce unmet need across Wales. There is more than we can do, and we will work with all partners and stakeholders to ensure that we can save as many lives as possible. 

We will start work immediately on the planning for a new facility. We will do this with the involvement of our service’s medical and aviation colleagues to create a site that meets their needs.  

We will also be engaging with the NHS Wales Joint Commissioning Committee which will set out the implementation plan in more detail. This will include key milestones and timescales.
