What is an Air Ambulance Company?

Do you know what an air ambulance is? Well, it is lifesaving transportation – that is primarily used to transport the sick and injured patients for both short or long-distance travels in case of medical emergencies. 

An air ambulance is equipped with almost all the related materials/ tools that are required for emergency repartition while also ensuring specialised medical personnel are onboard to ensure the safest journey to destination.Usually, there are two different types of air ambulances that are being used for medical transport in the UK – one are air ambulance helicopters and the others are fixed-wing aeroplanes. People may use both depending upon the emergency requirements and recommendations by medical consultants. Any age group of people can be in need of the air ambulance - in fact, anyone might want to get transported from a remote area and benefit from an air ambulance as it is possible that there is not enough professional medical care available on the spot. This is particularly true for British citizens abroad. 

Medevac or medical evacuation is often proposed if there is a large-scale incident with a higher number of affected people or there is a small-scale incident when there is a critical need to transport patients abroad/ to the UK. Especially, there are situations when airbus services are required for children as they will need immediate care. So, there is even no compromise for a fraction of a second.

But Medical Reparation UK will still provide the patients their services even if that is not covered in insurance.
