Air ambulance charities

The Trust is supported by five air ambulance charities who work tirelessly to raise funds to supply, equip and operate the air ambulance helicopters.

Without the charities, the Trust would not be in a position to have access to air ambulances.

The work of the charities in funding the service is detailed on their websites. For more information please follow the links below. You can also visit the Association of Air Ambulances here.

Bath-based paramedic Simon Moody has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to save the life of a Clevedon man – while off duty – and is encouraging everybody to learn the lifesaving CPR skill. South Western Ambulance Service’s (SWASFT) paramedic Simon Moody was off duty and stuck in Bath city centre traffic in the pouring rain in May 2017 when he noticed a man looking unwell on the pavement. It soon became clear the man was struggling to breath and was going into cardiac arrest at the side of the road, as passers-by tried to help. Luckily for the patient Simon stepped straight in and gave him chest compressions putting his paramedic life-saving skills into action before backup from his ambulance crew mates arrived.
