IoD South West | Visit to Cornwall Air Ambulance

24 Oct 2019
Cornwall Air Ambulance, Newquay

Taking to the skies in 1987, Cornwall Air Ambulance was the first air ambulance in the UK.  It has now completed more than 26,000 missions, saving countless lives.  Join IoD Members and guests to hear about the business challenges of running this worthwhile charity.  

Cornwall Air Ambulance is on scene on average in just 12 minutes in mainland Cornwall and less than 30 minutes on the Isles of Scilly. The paramedic aircrew provide pre-hospital critical care at the scene of the incident and can go on to fly the patient to specialist hospital units in Cornwall, Devon or Bristol and even as far as Swansea.

Hear from Cornwall Air Ambulance how they have transformed the governance, the structure and the leadership of what is the first UK Air Ambulance operation.  There will be a chance to see the behind the scenes and meet with the crew (subject to operational availability), as well as networking opportunities over tea and coffee.
