Today we go live!!! Our new partnership is with the Air Ambulance based at Coventry Airport. We have been able to extend our service to delivering blood to them 3 times a week. This means the air crew will be able to give patients blood products immediately after a major injury - before they reach hospital.
From today we will, in conjunction with the Leicestershire and Rutland Blood Bike Group, start supplying blood to the Air Ambulances based at East Midlands and Coventry Airports.
This is a fantastic opportunity to extend our activities with this joint operation in supplying such a vital emergency service.
