  • Mission statement

    Please picture the scene: It’s dark, it’s cold. You or a loved one are trapped in your car and losing blood fast. Your injuries are so severe you need specialist medical care there and then at the road side, you are quite possibly dying. You’re in the East of England where Magpas is on call to provide its charity funded enhanced Doctor and Paramedic teams by Air Ambulance or by land….

    Many of the UK’s expert medics volunteer with Magpas to provide enhanced frontline medical care. Our Helimedix team work together to save lives at the roadside, someone’s home, place of work or where they are needed most. Magpas is also one of the leading providers for trauma care in the UK.

    We have attended over 60,000 people in need since we were founded in 1971, over forty years ago. We receive no Government or National Lottery funding and rely wholly on generous donations and grants to keep this vital service going.
