The Wales Air Ambulance service is delivered via a unique Third sector and Public Sector partnership. The Charity raises the funds for the helicopter and rapid response vehicle operations (£11.2 million every year). The Emergency Medical Retrieval and Transfer Service (EMRTS) supplies highly skilled NHS consultants and critical care practitioners who work on board the Charity’s vehicles. 

Our lifesaving service is delivered by air and by road. We have four helicopters and a fleet of rapid response vehicles. These are currently based in Caernarfon, Welshpool, Dafen (Llanelli) and Cardiff. 

In 2024, we expect to reach a huge milestone, 50,000 missions. Our crews attend around 4,000 incidents each year across Wales, helping patients, wherever and whenever they need us.
