Why are we fundraising?

We need to raise £2 million to equip a fleet of four Critical Care Ambulances with the latest life-saving medical equipment.

  • As a result of recent technology and medical advances, most of the equipment used – whilst still able to do its job – is old and requires a lot of maintenance.
  • Most of the dated equipment has not been designed to be used in an ambulance.
  • The new equipment will mean all four ambulances can be deployed at the same time to meet the critical needs of all patients, no matter their age or illness, allowing the KIDS/NTS team to respond to any emergency – neonatal or paediatric.
  • We therefore urgently need to raise the funds to ensure all four ambulance can offer a highly specialist intensive care services on the move.

Your support will mean we can respond faster and more effectively, helping vulnerable patients and their families get to the right place, at the right time for the right treatment.
