The air ambulance service receives £50,000 donation

Filed under: Air Ambulance News — Posted by: Andrew on February 17, 2012

An air ambulance transported patients to the UK from the Isle of Man to the UK and has been rewarded with a donation for £50,000.

The Manx Heart Support Group made the donation which the air ambulance has used to fund a new and top of the range stretcher.

The air ambulance transport approximately 350 patients each and every year from the Isle of Man and is available all day and every day.

Their new acquisition will ensure that they are able to transport patients safely and easily onboard the aircraft which is well-matched with the life support systems they have.

The Department of Health believe that an additional stretcher will allow them to transfer patients faster when they are required to deal with multiple patients. Previously a stretcher would need to be returned from the United Kingdom to the hospital prior to the next patient transfer taking place.

With the new stretcher, the next person needing attention can be made prepared for the flight and leave the moment the aircraft has landed in the Isle of Man.

The Manx Heart Support Group Chair, Win Kewley, is pleased that they can contribute to such a worthy service.

“We don’t actively fund-raise but instead provide people affected by heart disease or heart conditions with support, advice and the opportunity to talk in a friendly environment. Despite not actively seeking funds we do receive donations from time to time as well as bequests so it’s great to see that money being put to such good use for the people of the Isle of Man and in a service that really does make the difference”.
