Help us build an intensive and realistic training environment for our critical care doctors and paramedics. High-tech visual projections and sound will submerge our critical care team in ultra-real training scenarios so they can practice advanced procedures on human-like medical mannequins under the same stress and pressure of a real-life incident. From a car crash by a busy road to an incident in a child's bedroom, this immersive training will help our teams go out and save more lives.
Our air ambulance doctors and paramedics work 24/7 and are dispatched up to 6 times a day. They aim to save lives and reduce/prevent disability and suffering from critical illness/injury by providing a first-class pre-hospital emergency medical service. Treating patients at the scene, away from immediate hospital support, they could be performing open-heart surgery on a road one minute and managing a blood transfusion mid-air the next. When work is this tough there is no substitute for training.
We will build a facility at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance's North Weald Airbase for the realistic simulation, debrief and critique of incident-based scenarios. This will enhance confidence, knowledge, team communication and performance at the scene of each mission. Following your investment we will also share learning and experiences with partners across the emergency services and the NHS, opening the facility up for cross team simulations such as road traffic accidents and terrorist incidents.
With your help our critical care team of doctors and paramedics will continue to perform increasingly complex medical procedures in unusual locations and scenarios. The result will be a continually stronger air ambulance for the people of Essex and Hertfordshire and the saving of more lives. In addition, our high-tech training environment will become a Centre of Excellence, setting training standards for wider medical and emergency service communities across Essex and Hertfordshire and beyond.
