The Up Against Time Appeal

Serious injury can happen to anyone at any time. Every day in London, five people are so badly injured that they need immediate, hospital-level treatment at the scene to survive.

For over three decades, our crews have been the only ones who can perform emergency surgery at the scene in London. Every minute our patients are waiting for treatment, can mean the difference between life and death, full recovery or lifelong disability. Our helicopters get us to the patient’s side in just 11 minutes.

Today we face another race against time – our helicopter fleet will soon need replacing. We need to raise £15 million by 2024 so that we can continue to save lives in London. As a charity reliant on donations, we need the support of generous businesses to help us be there for the next patient like Bruno:
