Magpas Air Ambulance provides the very best pre-hospital emergency care, in the air or on land, including treatments usually only available in hospital.


The charity operates 24/7 and saw its busiest year on record in 2023, responding to more than 1,900 emergency calls for help.


Serving the communities of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and across the East of England, Magpas Air Ambulance is dispatched by both the East of England and the East Midlands Ambulance Service Trusts—caring for a population of over 10 million.


Their advanced medical team combines the skills of a senior doctor and critical care paramedic on every shift. All members of the team are specially trained in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM), and support the ambulance service by bringing advanced medical care directly to their patients’ side when time is of the essence.


Saving lives and keeping families together, the service has treated over 70,000 patients since it was founded in 1971. As a charity, Magpas Air Ambulance is not government funded and can only continue to be there for people in your community thanks to generous public donations.
