Working in partnership with the NHS
Led by our Chief Medical Officer Dr Simon Forrington, a consultant with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and the North West Air Ambulance, the Capital Air Ambulance team works closely with the NHS to secure a bed at the destination hospital, guaranteeing a smooth transfer and the highest levels of uninterrupted care.
Our consultant-led service includes NHS-trained medical professionals and multilingual case handling. Capital offers adult, neonatal and paediatric specialities and we fly with critical care capability as standard.
In addition to our comprehensive bed-to-bed service, Capital Air Ambulance provides hospital-to-hospital transfers, by air or ground ambulance, alleviating pressure on NHS ambulance services and medical teams.
