Construction of a purpose-built airbase, headquarters, and training centre for Magpas Air Ambulance service in Cambridgeshire.
The building includes a dedicated state-of-the-art training centre for emergency doctors and paramedics. It is equipped for 24/7 operations with well-being and rest facilities for crew and clinicians.
It has new community and patient facilities on site, including a dedicated space for patients and their families to visit the charity and meet with the clinicians who treated them.
The location of the new airbase is situated closer to the region’s major trunk roads, which will reduce vehicle dispatch times by up to 15 minutes, and the co-location of the charity’s operations and support staff, who currently work across two sites, will be more efficient in reducing charity overheads and improving environmental impact.
HRH, The Princess Royal, who is Magpas Air Ambulance’s Royal Patron, officially opened the base in September 2023.
