Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance

Who we are

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance receives no direct Government or National Lottery funding and relies on the public for support.  

We operate a AW169 helicopter from our airbase at Henstridge on the Dorset/Somerset border.  From there, we can be at any point in the two counties within 19 minutes.  More importantly, the helicopter can then take a patient to any one of the Major Trauma Centres in the south west within a further 20 minutes.

Our operational costs are over £5 million a year and the approximate cost per mission is £3,000.
