All ambulance and rescue missions on our Westpac Rescue Helicopter have an Intensive Care paramedic on board. Their job includes being winched out of the helicopter during rescue missions and providing life-saving care to patients.
Our paramedics are among the most highly skilled in the country. They are supplied through a joint venture with Wellington Free Ambulance and come at a significant financial cost to Life Flight.
Flight Nurses and Doctors
The flight nurses and doctors from Wellington Regional Hospital require specialist aero-medical training before joining Life Flight’s team.
They ensure a high level of care is provided to patients onboard our aircraft.
To be a member of this team requires significant skill and experience.
