The Air Ambulance Reference Group (AARG) project was established to provide expert advice to the Minister for ACC and the Minister of Health on a framework for the provision of ‘air ambulance’ services for New Zealand that:

  • is safe, sustainable, cost-effective, appropriate and efficient
  • meets the reasonable expectations and needs of New Zealand’s diverse communities
  • meets, as best as is possible, patient needs and targeted patient outcomes
  • ensures that appropriate resources are reasonably available for the needs of communities, agencies and organisations involved in search and rescue and other non-medical emergencies.
