A claim for injuries suffered from an accident that needed an air ambulance service will require Chiltern no-win, no-fee* lawyers
The crew of the air ambulance service work shifts of 12 hours and work for four days then have a four-day break. There is always a paramedic on duty in the 999 control room and another at the base. The paramedics will screen emergency calls and make the appropriate decision on whether or not an incident requires the services of an air ambulance. Paramedics who work at the Thames and Chiltern Air Ambulance mostly come from the standard ambulance service with many taking the opportunity to gain more diverse skills in a different environment.
When a patient is on board the air ambulance the paramedics have the ability to perform ultra-sounds and blood gas analysis with the latter being used to check for the nature of the trauma suffered. The most often destination of patients transported by the service is the John Radcliffe Hospital located in Oxford because it has the major trauma unit in the local area. A large part of the job is to make sure the patient is transported to the right hospital for their needs.
For paramedics, working in the air ambulance service is considered as being the most demanding position in their field with the requirements to be accepted into the service including clinical assessments, fitness tests and interviews. Some of the members of the service come from a military background of flying helicopters although there is more immediacy to the flights and potential landing sites can be difficult to determine.
