Marie Rimmer CBE MP with the new Alder Hey children's air ambulance

On Friday (3rd March 2019) I was glad to attend a celebratory showing of the new Agusta 169 helicopter, which provides an outstanding paediatric transfer and retrieval service for major children’s hospitals in the North of England (including Alder Hey). At the event the crew of the helicopter were present and explained to me and Maria Eagle MP how they operate the helicopter and the incredible difference it makes to the young people of the North West.

At the event the Air Ambulance Service also launched their new Children’s Ambassador Club (a first for the UK), #TheCrew as a social and educational club for 7-15 year olds. #TheCrew is free to join and helps children learn simple first aid and aviation tips as well as having fun special events.
