Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance 

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is a registered charity, established to provide relief from sickness and injury for the people in Dorset and Somerset, by the provision of an air ambulance. We receive no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery and rely entirely on the generosity of the public for support.

Since our launch in March 2000 we have flown over 10,500 missions.  We operate a Eurocopter EC135 helicopter from our airbase at Henstridge on the Dorset/Somerset border.  From there, we can be at any point in the two counties within 19 minutes.  More importantly, the helicopter can then take a patient to any one of the Major Trauma Centres in the South West within a further 20 minutes. 

Our operational costs are over £2 million a year.  The cost per mission is approximately £2,500.
