Alongside our helicopter, the Critical Care Response cars allows us to attend multiple incidents at the same time, if needed deploy more than one crew to an incident, and particularly in more built-up urban towns and cities get to incidents more quickly by positioning the cars around the counties that we cover.
Our doctors and paramedics receive specialist training to enable them to operate from our helicopter as well as driving the Critical Care Response cars as part of the specialised course they attend upon joining Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
Alongside this, our doctors and paramedics receive advanced pre-hospital emergency medicine training making them ready for any eventuality and giving our patients the best chance when the worst happens.
