THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT LONDON’S AIR AMBULANCE CHARITY
The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel
Wednesday 9th January, 2019
The Duke of Cambridge will visit London’s Air Ambulance on Wednesday 9th January to recognise the work that the organisation’s first responders carry out delivering life-saving treatment across London.
London’s Air Ambulance, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in London 365 days a year. Prior to the establishment of the charity in 1989, many seriously injured patients lost their lives unnecessarily because of the delay in receiving prompt and appropriate medical care. Since its inception, London’s Air Ambulance has provided rapid response and cutting-edge medical care, bringing the hospital emergency department to the scene of an incident, and delivering life-saving treatment to the 10 million people who live and work in London.
The Duke, who previously worked as an air ambulance pilot for the East Anglia Air Ambulance, will hear more from London’s Air Ambulance pilots, clinicians and paramedics about their experiences of working as first responders, and the challenges they face operating in London. His Royal Highness will also learn more about the work that the LAA is undertaking in the area of mental health support for their staff. The Duke will then join staff, patients and their families at a tea party marking London Air Ambulance’s 30th anniversary.
