What We Do The Facts The Facts Last year (2018/2019) we were tasked to 1,394 incidents, an increase of 17% on the previous year. We administered pre-hospital anaesthesia to 106 patients, 41 patients were given 138 units of blood to treat their life-threatening bleeding and we flew 15-time critical inter-hospital transfers. When patients are critically ill or injured, a key element in their survival is arriving at a hospital with the specialist expertise to enable immediate life saving care. Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance plays a key role in this chain of survival as our clinical team stabilise patients whilst the aviation team enable vast distances to be travelled rapidly. Every mission and every life depends on the generosity of people like you so on behalf of the patients that need us, thank you so much!
