Air Ambulance - 30 years saving lives

by Banana Crumble | Jan 12, 2019

This year the Air Ambulance Service Charity marks 30 years of saving lives. Prior to its establishment in 1989 many seriously injured patients lost their lives unnecessarily because of the delay in receiving prompt care.  During those 30 years the London Air Ambulance alone has treated nearly 40,000 critically injured patients and it has become a world leading service that forms a vital part of emergency response.

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, has become the Patron for the 30th anniversary campaign in London.  He previously flew for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Across the UK the services are provided by a mixture of organisations, using both helicopters and fixed-wing aircrafts. As you can see from the below it is a fairly extensive list. For details of each service visit 

Banana Crumble salutes these incredibly important services and the crew that provides them.
