Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity provides lifesaving emergency care to people who cannot be reached by road, or are in a state so critical that they require the specialist skills of their team at the scene of the accident.

Though they are part of the regional 999 response service and work closely with NHS hospitals, they are a charity entirely funded by local people!

GWAAC is the local air ambulance for Bristol and the 5 surrounding counties. Last year Great Western Air Ambulance Charity attended 1,655 missions which works out at an average of 4 incidents a day. Flying senior level doctors and critical care paramedics to the scene, GWAAC brings the hospital to the patient. It’s a charity and it relies on the support of the local community to keep flying!
