Aeromedical flight evacuation is an extremely intricate and complex matter and is not always the answer.
It is sometimes neither in the medical interest of the patient nor within the financial resource of the individual having to pay the bill. Financial pressures, however, must be resisted and all decisions taken on medical grounds, otherwise an unnecessary element of risk is introduced.
Hasty and badly organised air ambulance evacuations could result in costly and ill coordinated exercises to the detriment of the patient and family.
Heathrow Air Ambulance is an experienced emergency service which can best determine the appropriate action that is required in the event of a medical emergency occurring overseas.
