Should people from abroad pay for air ambulance in Wales?

Only if it's taking them all the way back abroad too.

Why. Just cause I'm curious what your thinking. 

And no I don't think they should

You might have hit on the ultimate crowd funder, by my rather poor maths that works out at an annual invoice of £0.0008 per person resident in the world outside Wales. Pretty good value I'd say but you might not get a 100% take up.

In the spirit of reciprocation I personally am looking forward to contributing my £0.000000003 share of the Swaziland meals on wheels service for the over 65s.

(£1,000,00 per year per air ambulance) divided by (7,000,000,000 people abroad) gives 0.014 p per year per air ambulance per person abroad.

Seems pretty compelling if you can get the cost of collecting it down to less than 0.01 p per person per year.

Edit: Beaten by another poster whilst doing maths in my head.

When you say abroad, do you mean English?

Why stop at people from abroad, should people from the UK pay for air ambulances?  So far as I am aware, they are all charities funded by public donations (like MRT only a whole level more expensive to run), not part of the NHS.

Not quite. The Scottish Ambulance Service have two helicopters and two planes that are centrally funded.
