Magpas Key Facts

Who are we?
Magpas Air Ambulance is a charity which brings essential lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond. Some of the UK’s expert doctors and paramedics volunteer their own time to work with us.
We lead the way in trauma care training and have a strong clinical heritage of over 45 years. Today, we offer pioneering training to doctors and paramedics wishing to specialise in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM), for which we are renowned in the medical world.

What do we do?
The Magpas Air Ambulance medical team receives enhanced training which allows them to offer procedures and treatments at the scene, like general anaesthetic, which are usually only available in hospital.
Our enhanced doctors and paramedics support the ambulance service by bringing additional skills and treatments to the scene of an incident. The frontline care the Magpas Air Ambulance team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people return to a good quality of life.
