In 2010 Sir Stirling Moss suffered a terrible fall in his home in London. Within minutes our specialist doctor and paramedic trauma team were at his side providing advanced medical care. Sir Stirling has since made a full recovery and yesterday visited our operational helipad to thank the team and find out more about our service.

Sir Stirling said: "So few Londoners realise that this fantastic service is provided by a charity. London's Air Ambulance helped me in my time of need and it is wonderful to come and meet the team and hear about the great work they do on the streets of London every day. Accidents can happen to any of us and this charity is vital for anyone seriously injured in London."

Dr Julian Thompson, Executive Director of London's Air Ambulance said: "It was an honour to welcome Sir Stirling and Lady Moss to the London's Air Ambulance helipad. We look after over 2000 critically injured Londoners each year and it is a real boost for our team to see Sir Stirling back in good health - it is exactly why this service exists. To continue developing this vital service to London this charity needs the support of the people we serve."
