Surrey was one of only few counties in the UK that did not have its own dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service - HEMS, but this will change in summer 2007! There are currently 16 independent air ambulance operators all of which are registered charities and funded entirely by charitable donations, receiving no Government or National Lottery funding.
The new HEMS service, will be based at Dunsfold Park, flying fast, direct and unhindered at over 150 miles per hour, the entire county can be reached within minutes.
Now the appeal has met its target of £250,000 the challenge is to meet the yearly running costs of approximately £1.5 million to provide Surrey and neighboring Sussex with an emergency helicopter service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
