Although there is a National Health Service in the UK, local Health Trusts discharge the responsibilities for care in their own areas. A Health Trust may have been associated with the initiation of an Air Ambulance project, but generally it has withdrawn to a greater or lesser degree from their on-going funding, which has been picked up by a specialist charity to continue to provide the service. It is convenient in Helis.com to present these local Air Ambulances as units, so we can show ownership of individual air frames, although in practice there is no formal control over them from a national level, or even sometimes from the Heath Trust over the Air ambulance in the area it operates !
