East Anglian Air Ambulance exists to save lives by delivering highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people in the region. We are a life-saving charity that is only kept airborne thanks to our incredible supporters. Thank you.

Together we save lives


Total Missions

Since the charity launched in 2000, our crews have been dispatched to patients at the roadside, in the city, on the beach, maybe near where you live. Read about our latest missions.

How we work to make a difference

Effective Response

Effective Response

With the combination of a quick response time, advanced critical care on scene and quick transfer to the appropriate hospital, our mission is to save more lives across East Anglia.

First Aid

First Aid

We're aiming to minimise the impact of trauma in the community by providing vital first aid training, so more people can take action if someone nearby suffers a medical emergency.



The missions we attend are often life-changing for our patients. By offering dedicated aftercare support, we're helping more of our patients and their families with their recovery journeys.



By developing partnerships and collaborations with local organisations who have aligned ambitions to ours, we can continue to do the very best for each and every patient we treat.

Together This Christmas

Paul Shattock is one of very few who has been helped by EAAA, twice, after he suffered two cardiac arrests, just 10 days apart. Please donate this Christmas to help us help more people like Paul by flying 24/7.

Mission 24/7: We Need Your Help

The time of day or night should not determine what level of emergency critical care you receive in a life-threatening situation. We need your help to become a 24/7 service by 2020.

Meet Jonathan

On one of the hottest days of 2018, 21-year-old Jonathan Waddingham and his colleague Tim Harrington were working on an irrigation system on a farm just outside Newmarket. 

Without warning, part of the irrigation kit suddenly exploded, catching Jonathan in the chest and immediately bouncing to his hip.
