STRUCTURE: The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance has relocated one of its helicopters to Redhill in Surrey.
It operates two aircraft with two medical teams – one based at Marden in Kent and the other at Dunsfold in Surrey.
As part of plans to make its services available 24 hours a day, the charity is moving one helicopter from its Dunsfold base to Redhill Aerodrome in Surrey.
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust chief executive Adrian Bell said: “The move to Redhill is necessitated by the need to cover all counties by night at short notice with just one helicopter which will also operate during daylight hours.”
The air ambulance service in Kent, Surrey and Sussex costs around £5m annually.
