Who we are 

London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients.

Using a helicopter from 08:00 to sunset, and rapid response cars at night or in adverse weather situations, London’s Air Ambulance brings the hospital to the patient when time is critical. We perform innovative and potentially life-saving procedures usually found in the emergency department on-scene. The team, consisting of an advanced trauma doctor, paramedic and consultant on most missions, can perform treatments such as open heart surgery, blood transfusions and general anaesthetic by the roadside.

By providing intervention as quickly as possible after injury, we aim to give patients the best chance of survival, and best quality of life, after trauma.

We serve the 10 million people that live work and travel within the M25, treating an average of five patients every day. The most common incidents we attend include road traffic collisions, stabbings and shootings, falls from height and incidents on the rail network.

 

We're proud to be a charity

Since we were formed as a charity in 1989, we have always been independent, self-governing and mostly funded through public donations - the charity relies on 96% of its funding coming from the general public.

We receive some funding and support from the NHS via Barts Health NHS Trust and London Ambulance Service to help us deliver our life-saving care.  We are not seeking to be fully Government funded, as whilst we work alongside the NHS, our degree of independence provides some autonomy and flexibility to push the boundaries of pre-hospital care well beyond standard care allowing us to pioneer new treatments to help save lives.  We are very proud to be a charity and have the support of London to deliver our service.
