Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) is a charity providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. EHAAT aims to bring the hospital to the patient. A highly skilled Pre-hospital Care Doctor, Critical Care Paramedic and life-saving equipment can be transported to patients within minutes, enabling life-saving procedures to start at the earliest opportunity. Patients can then be transferred quickly to the most appropriate hospital for their needs. This service is provided free of charge, but unlike NHS emergency services, the Charity receives no direct funding from the National Lottery and only limited funding from the Government. It costs over £500,000 every month to keep the service operational and saving lives and this would not be possible without the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex, Hertfordshire and beyond. We can’t fly without you!
