We need to carry blood to save more lives

Our clinicians have seen first-hand that administering blood products in a life-threatening emergency improves patient outcomes. Our aim is to now permanently carry blood to treat our most gravely injured patients and help save more lives.

Meet Harry Fisher

When our crew were tasked to 17-year-old Harry after he was involved in a road traffic collision, they weren't sure if he would make it to hospital due to the extent of his injuries, specifically the amount of blood he was losing and that both of his lungs had collapsed.

Dr Jeremy Mauger, who was there on the day, said: “Given the amount of blood Harry had lost, without a blood transfusion his odds of surviving to hospital would have been significantly reduced.”

Meet Pilot Henrietta

"I’ve wanted to be a pilot since I was 12 and becoming a HEMS pilot was always my dream and why I wanted to fly helicopters. I feel very privileged to be able to work with such amazing crews and inspirational people at Babcock and EAAA. I look forward to coming to work, the flying is exciting and every day is different!"
