Head Scanner Appeal

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air AmbulanceHead Scanner Appeal

We recently launched an appeal for a new head scanner unit, following the success of our Night Flying Appeal, and we are delighted to report that we have raised more than £30,000. However we urgently need to raise an additional £4,000 to cover the cost of this specialist equipment.

The new head scanner will help crews to identify any serious medical complications a patient may have as a result of injury, therefore speeding up the diagnostic and treatment process. With your support we will be able to fund this state-of-the art technology.

Our Lions Air Ambulance Night Flying Appeal raised an incredible amount of money totalling £250,000 to help ensure the KSSAA can fly during the hours of darkness. In 2016 we funded the purchase of two fast response cars for crews to use when it is not possible for the helicopters to fly. The cars now bear the Lions logo, emphasising our ongoing partnership with the KSSAA.

We have been asked to approve funding for further night vision googles which will use the remainder of the funds raised to support the night flying programme. KSSAA are working closely with helipad-capable Hospital Trusts across the South-East Region to ensure the helipads are operational for both day and night flying.

By giving something today you will truly be making a difference – without public support, the air ambulance simply could not continue giving life-saving care, 24 hours a day. Any surplus funds raised through this campaign will go towards the next Lions project for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.
