Our outreach car has been fully staffed and operational throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

It operates for 12 hours a day in the East Dorset area and is manned by a specialist practitioner in critical care. The rapid arrival of this additional resource provided by Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance enables patients to receive enhanced care at the earliest time possible. Integration of the patient’s pathway to receiving further critical care if needed, is often smoother with the involvement of the outreach clinician. Read more about our outreach car.
