    e-petition for air ambulances in the UK

    Return VAT on Air Ambulance fuel payments. - e-petitions

    Thought it was a worthy cause and lots of people on here - figured most if not all would be willing to sign said petition

    I'd go further - the government/NHS should fund the air ambulances rather than leaving them reliant on charity donations. Charity should be for added extras, and the air ambulances have shown time and time again that they are essential for life saving.

    I believe the last thing the RNLI would want is government funding. Maybe the Air Ambulance is the same?

    the air ambulances have shown time and time again that they are essential for life saving.
    But unfortunately they are extremely poor value for money

    They can save lives that wouldn't have been saved and that is great but the NHS (e.g Joe Bloggs thru taxes) simply cannot afford to fund them.

    But it probably wouldn't break the bank to cut them some slack on fuel VAT as that is a lot better in the value for money stakes
