This week is Air Ambulance Week and is an opportunity for me to say thanks and to celebrate the London Air Ambulance.
London’s Air Ambulance brings the hospital to the scene – delivering urgent, cutting-edge medical care when London calls. The service was founded in 1989 and to date has treated over 40,000 critically injured people and attended most major incidents in London including 7/7, the Grenfell Tower fire and London Bridge terror incident.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, they have remained operational 24/7 for every one of the 10 million people who live and work in London and we have expanded and adapted some services. Critical injury from road traffic incidents, falls from height, assaults and other injuries are the biggest killer of people aged under 40.
It costs around £11million each year to deliver the service, however they have had to stop many of their usual fundraising activities during lockdown, so they need our support more than ever.
Please show your support for our amazing London Air Ambulance.
