UK Healthcare Supports North West Air Ambulance with Charitable Donation

Bolton, UK (RPRN) 04/23/13 — Leading provider of health cash plans, UK Healthcare, backs North West Air Ambulance charity, and their life saving missions across the UK.

UK Healthcare, one of the UK’s leading providers of personal and corporate health cash plans, has provided a major donation to North West Air Ambulance, in order to help the charity raise some of the funds that they require to fly life saving missions across the UK.

The North West Air Ambulance charity has provided emergency aerial services throughout the North West region for almost 15 years. The organisation boasts two helicopters which fly seven days a week, and 365 days a year, from bases at Royal Preston Hospital and University Hospital of South Manchester. This allows their air ambulance services to cover 5,500 square miles and a population of more than 8 million people.

With North West Air Ambulance, people involved in major trauma, especially with head or spinal injuries, can receive medical treatment quickly before being transferred to a specialist hospital in record time.

Patients are never more than 10 minutes from the nearest hospital, since North West Air Ambulance can forgo problems of distance and congestion. No matter where they are, from city centres to busy motorways or isolated countryside, they can receive a fast and effective ambulance service.

A team of highly qualified paramedics use sophisticated equipment to stabilise patients and transport them, comfortably, to the hospital within the ‘Golden Hour’. As a result, the patient’s chances of survival, and their speed of recovery, improve significantly.

North West Air Ambulance also provide hospital transfer for critically ill or injured patients who need to travel long distances for emergency surgeries.

For more information about North West Air Ambulance, pay a visit to the organisation’s official website.

It’s an invaluable service, but one that relies upon the generosity of its supporters to continue. It costs more than £4.2 million a year to maintain both aircraft, and the organisation receives almost no central government or lottery funding. They rely upon charitable donations from individuals and organisations like UK Healthcare.

As a leading provider of personal and corporate health cash plans, UK Healthcare offer a variety of policies which allow plan holders to claim back the money they spend on a wide range of medical services, including dental and optical checkups, X-Rays, health screenings, medical prescriptions and hospital stays, up to agreed policy limits.

But the company also backs a variety of fantastic charities and healthcare institutions throughout the UK, including North West Air Ambulance. Last year, UK Healthcare raised more than £56,000 for health related charities. It was a record breaking year of charity work, but one that they intend to improve upon further in 2013.
