Wiltshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust
Wiltshire Air Ambulance was established in March 1990 as a joint venture between the Wiltshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the Wiltshire Constabulary. We shared a helicopter with Wiltshire Police for 24 years until we became a stand-alone air ambulance in January 2015, using a Bell 429 helicopter.
We are a registered charity and rely on donations to provide an essential Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) in Wiltshire and surrounding counties. Our service is operational up to 19 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our paramedics are trained in critical care skills and, together with the specialist medical equipment they use, it enables them to deliver gold standard medical care to patients.
We moved into our new airbase at Semington, near Melksham, in May 2018, bringing together the helicopter, aircrew and charity team under one roof and on land the charity owns for the first time in our history. Our patron, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, officially opened our airbase in December 2018.
