24th Oct 2013

Yesterday marked a moment in history when we had our debut landing on our new helipad which is based on top of the new Royal London Hospital. Although we are not officially moving until 14th December, we had to run some tests and training ahead of our first day of operation.

The new helipad, which is 284ft high, is almost the same height as Big Ben and one of the highest in Europe. The new Royal London Hospital is home to the UK’s leading trauma and emergency care centre and a highly-acclaimed children’s hospital. It will provide the people of east London with one of the best-equipped and most comfortable hospitals anywhere, reflecting at last the outstanding clinical excellence of staff.
