Find out more about the EAAA Research, Audit, Innovation and Development (RAID) group and read our research publications below.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) aims to provide the best possible care to our patients. Our Research Audit Innovation & Development (RAID) group supports us to monitor and continually improve the service we provide and use the latest evidence behind cutting edge pre-hospital care to develop new treatments, equipment, and skills.

We carry out original research and evaluation studies and collaborate across our network of other air ambulances, the NHS and universities to share knowledge. Our ultimate aim is to improve emergency care for all patients.

Below is a selection of recent publications by EAAA staff or using EAAA data.
