Erica Ley


Erica is a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service Critical Care Paramedic. She has worked for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust for the last three years. She is also a Hazardous Area Response Team Paramedic based in Cambridgeshire. She holds a BSc (Hons) in Paramedic Science and has almost completed a MSc in Advanced Paramedic Practice in Critical Care.

Last year Shu chose Herts Air Ambulance as her chosen charity. Having recently returned from trekking in Nepal, Erica was invited to be part of Shu’s RAAM team to fulfil the medical role, looking after Shu and the crew in emergency situations. Crewing for Shu last year, provided her with medical event planning experience and challenging healthcare both prior to and during the event which she describes as a highlight of her career so far!

She is thrilled to have been asked to support Shu again this year, and cannot wait to be on that start line again to help Shu conquer the 3000 mile challenge!
