Letter from the CEO

CEO Jonathan Jenkins

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. Here, you can find out more about our work and latest updates, as well as how to get involved through fundraising, donating, volunteering and more. Thank you for visiting, and for your dedicated support for our charity; we couldn’t do what we do without you.

Bob has been in the position of Chair for over a month, and so we spoke to him to find out more about the beginning of his tenure.

To celebrate International Firefighters’ Day, we spoke to Mark Drewitt, one of the five fire crew at London’s Air Ambulance. Here, he tells us what it’s like to be part of the London’s Air Ambulance crew, and how he found himself working on top of Europe’s tallest helipad.

British Science Week is a 10-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, taking place between 11-20 March 2022. To mark this week, we spoke to London’s Air Ambulance’s Lead Flight Paramedic, Lynsey Grant, to hear why science is a key element to our society.

For International Woman’s Day 2022, we spoke to Dr Chloe Baker, one of London’s Air Ambulance registrars. Recently featured in Channel 4’s new documentary, “Emergency”, Chloe attends to London’s most critically injured patients on a daily basis; taking the hospital to the roadside when a life is on the line.

London’s Air Ambulance helicopter can get anywhere in London within 11 minutes of the klaxon sounding – with an average flight time of just 7.5 minutes. Take a minute to watch our Chief Pilot explain how you can help us if you see our red helicopter trying to land. 

If you are interested in what it's like for our doctors, paramedics, pilots and fire crew to work over the Christmas holidays, here Dr John Chatterjee gives a glimpse into the life on the frontline. Thank you for being a key part of our family and keeping our service running.
