The Duke of Cambridge is the Patron of our 30th anniversary campaign.

As a former air ambulance pilot, His Royal Highness will champion those working on the frontline and highlight the importance of our rapid response and cutting-edge medical care.

 

30 years saving lives Our charity was established by a group of committed, determined and pioneering medics. They recognised that seriously injured patients were dying unnecessarily because of the delay in receiving prompt and appropriate medical care. 

They understood that every second counts.

30 years on and every second still counts

For 30 years, London’s Air Ambulance Charity has been there for everyone who needs it.

And we’re still here, right now.

Today our cause is as clear and compelling as ever; to save the lives of critically-injured people through rapid response and cutting-edge medical care.

Your support allows us to innovate, saving lives in London and around the world. Here are some of the clinical firsts you've helped us introduce:

  • First in the UK to take a doctor to the patient's side by helicopter 
  • First survivor of open-heart surgery at the roadside
  • First to use life-saving REBOA procedure at the roadside.
  • First to carry blood on board

Our pioneering spirit continues to drive us to understand what more we can do to save lives.

Three decades of experience have taught us that a few seconds can mean the difference between life and death.

We can only continue to save lives with your support.
