children air ambulance aw169

This service is unique in the UK. It exists to transfer critically ill children and babies who are already in a hospital to a more specialised paediatric and neonatal hospital. It generally does not attend accidents and operates as a patient transfer service.
The Embrace Yorkshire & Humber Infant & Childrens Transport Service, part of Sheffield Childrens NHS Foundation Trust, provides life saving care by a team of specialist doctors and nurses who travel with their patients by road ambulances, helicopters and planes. Embrace works closely with Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, The Childrens Air Ambulance, Air Alliance and IAS Medical.

Based in Coventry, Warwickshire, they carried out their first transfer using own dedicated helicopter, an AW109 Grand operated by Sloane, on May 12th, 2013. Since 2017 flies AW169 from Specialist Air Services.

Since 2022 flying AW169 operated by Sloane.
