Midlands Air Ambulance charity close to completing plans for new airbase

Solihull Editorial 6th Feb, 2023   0

MIDLANDS Air Ambulance charity is on it’s way to completing its plan for a new airbase and charity headquarters.

Four years in the planning, the charity’s new airbase and headquarters will complement its existing air ambulance-led service across six Midlands counties to help some of the most critically ill and injured patients across the region.

The headquarters in Cosford, are designed to future-proof the advanced pre-hospital service, will provide a new environment for crew and staff, including main offices, warehousing and storage and space for two aircraft and critical care cars to allow the charity to expand its service in the future.

As a recognised ‘Centre of Clinical Excellence’ for pre-hospital emergency medicine, it will also help develop clinical skills and talent.




Hanna Sebright, chief executive of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, added: “We’ve been given a number of grants to support the construction of our new airbase and can’t wait to see it completed.”

More than 90 per cent of funding for the new airbase and headquarters facility has been obtained via major grants from organisations such as the Department for Health and Social Care and the HELP Appeal.


In addition, the charity is undertaking fundraising campaigns for specific areas of the new construction, including a clinical simulation training suite, memory garden and community education zone.

The facility is expected to be completed summer 2023.
