Registered Charity No: 1092204 (England & Wales).

Swooping in from the skies, the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) fulfils community-powered emergency care across the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. Operating three helicopters, 365 days a year, GNAAS crews respond to around 1,000 call outs each year.

Onboard each aircraft are specialist trauma doctors and paramedics, who bring accident and emergency expertise to the scene. Whether it’s a city centre or a remote mountain, our medics respond to wherever they are needed in the shortest space of time. We are the only air ambulance based in the North-East and Cumbria and our helicopters are never more than a 15-minute flight from the nearest hospital.

Gifts given to GNAAS in wills are crucial for us to provide this service. Last year, roughly a quarter of all our missions were only possible because of people remembering the charity in their will. Big or small, every legacy is important to us. After looking after your loved ones, please consider including a gift to GNAAS in your will. When our crew are called upon, your gift will fly with them. Together we will save local lives.
