Lucy Air Ambulance for Children is a national charity that flies children up to the age of 16 years between hospitals.
We transfer children for a variety of reasons including:
– to receive specialist care
– to be taken closer to home, including for end of life care
– for diagnostic tests
– for specialist surgery, including organ transplants
We are the only charity in the UK that can transfer children long distances because we use fixed-wing aircraft (aeroplanes). The transfers we provide are planned (non-emergency) which means from point of referral a child can be moved within 24 hours, depending on need.
