Geographical remit: 


London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in London.  The service provides pre-hospital medical care at the scene of the incident and serves the 10 million people who live, work and commute within the M25.  


The team, which at all times includes an advanced trauma doctor and paramedic, perform advanced medical interventions, normally only found in the hospital Emergency Department, in time critical, life threatening situations. Missions commonly involve serious road traffic collisions, falls from height, industrial accidents, assaults and injuries on the rail network.


London's Air Ambulance is based at The Royal London Hospital and operates 24/7, with the helicopter running in daylight hours and rapid response cars taking over at night. We will attend to patients who have been involved in time critical, life threatening situations.


London’s Air Ambulance has an international reputation for clinical excellence and delivers pioneering procedures which have been adopted across the world including being the first Air Ambulance service in the world to carry blood on board and pioneering the practice of pre-hospital thoracotomies (making an incision into the chest wall).
