What support is Wales Air Ambulance getting from NHS Wales/Welsh Government? The Wales Air Ambulance service is a unique partnership between the Wales Air Ambulance Charity and NHS Wales (supported by Welsh Government). The Charity raises the required funds to deliver the helicopter operation and rapid response vehicles. NHS Wales contributes the doctors and critical care practitioners, and electro-medical equipment. It is important to state that the Charity is an independent organisation that relies entirely on charitable donations to maintain the helicopter operation. It receives no direct government funding.
