No VAT on UK Air Ambulance Fuel

Exempt UK Air Ambulance Services from paying VAT on fuel. All UK Air Ambulance Services are charities - they are not publicly funded.

Why is this important?

In a life threatening emergency the Air Ambulance Service is your lifeline no matter where you live in the UK.

If you live in a rural area it is often your ONLY lifeline because it is too far by road for you to be treated within the golden hour.
