Bath's air ambulance
Our aircrew are called to more incidents each year in Bath and surrounding areas than any other Air Ambulance, both in our helicopter and our two critical care cars.
Our airbase in Semington, near Trowbridge, is just four minutes’ flying time to the centre of Bath, so you will regularly see our yellow and green helicopter in the skies over the city.
On average we are called to Bath and its surrounding areas – or fly/transfer patients to the city – at least three times a week.
83 Missions in the Bath area
Royal United Hospital
84 transfers to the local hospital
Four minutes to the city centre
Supporting your local hospital
During the Covid pandemic we supported the city's hospital by lending the emergency department two mechanical ventilators.
Martyn from Bath's story
It's been great to come and meet the Wiltshire Air Ambulance crew.
I know how lucky I’ve been. I’ve been left with reduced sight in my left eye and my left cheek remains numb to this day, but the rest of my body has fully recovered.
We attend the Bath Half Marathon and have had lots of brave people take on the challenge of running for us.
Our helicopter has previously flown over the event, providing a unique view of the city packed with runners and spectators.
Why not run for us in March 2024?
Keeping it local
You will often see Wiltshire Air Ambulance around the streets of Bath city centre and the surrounding areas.
It could be our helicopter or critical care cars - or it could be our branding on a park and ride bus.
We also support the Bath Spa train station and Bath bus station with advertising.
