Members of the public can meet the pilots, doctors, paramedics, staff and trustees of the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance at its Annual General Meeting next month (November 10th).
The open meeting will be held at Westerham Golf Club in Westerham and visitors will have the chance to ask questions about the life-saving service which has flown more than 1,000 missions so far this year.
Chief Executive Adrian Bell will talk about the impact that the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service has on patient outcomes and the charity’s plans for night operations. Members of the public are invited to attend the annual meeting to find out more about their Air Ambulance and how it operates. They will also have the opportunity to ask questions and speak to the crew and staff of the charity.
‘This charity exists to serve the community and constantly strives to deliver the best possible outcomes for the patient. Please come and join us to hear what we have to say, to question us and have your say and meet the crew to find out what we do and how we do it’ said Adrian Bell.
The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance needs £5million a year to keep both helicopters flying and relies almost entirely on public donations.
The specialist doctor and critical care paramedic can carry out advanced medical procedures at the scene of an accident or emergency, giving patients the best chance and quality of survival before flying patients on to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.
Westerham Golf Club is situated at Valence Park off Brasted Road in Westerham, Kent, TN16 1LJ and the meeting will start at 7pm.
