Cornwall Air Ambulance details 2017 missions
Cornwall Air Ambulance carried out a total of 869 missions during 2017 across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the charity reported on 12 January.
Of these, a total of 670 medical care missions were completed in the agency’s MD 902 helicopter fleet, with 346 patients requiring airlift to hospital for further treatment.
Cornwall Air Ambulance’s fleet is outfitted to enable it to provide much of the lifesaving care of a hospital emergency department on scene. The crew also flew 11 inter-hospital transfers of seriously ill patients.
Paula Martin, chief executive of Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, said: ‘Behind many of these annual mission statistics are families who are starting a new year together rather than grieving a devastating loss.
‘For many of our patients and their families, the sound of the air ambulance helicopter arriving is the sound of hope. The Cornwall Air Ambulance team is committed to working closely with our ambulance service which tasks the helicopter to each incident.’
