About London’s Air Ambulance (http://londonsairambulance.co.uk/) 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.
London’s Air Ambulance has an international reputation for clinical excellence and delivers pioneering procedures that have been adopted across the world.
The Institute for Pre-Hospital Care. For twenty-five years, London’s Air Ambulance has been a leader in the development and practice of pre-hospital care. Through its research, innovation and education activities, as well as the professional affiliations and publications of its clinical leadership, it has influenced clinical guidelines, governance standards and the practice of numerous air ambulances, in the U.K. and abroad.
The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care at London’s Air Ambulance (www.IoPHC.co.uk) was founded in 2013 to build on and expand this influence. Its mission is to drive excellence in pre-hospital care standards and practice through research, innovation and education; and by fostering collaboration across medical disciplines and institutions dedicated to improving outcomes for people afflicted by critical injury and illness.
In 2014, The Institute created, and will deliver, the UK’s first undergraduate degree in pre-hospital medicine, in partnership with Queen Mary University of London.

London’s Air Ambulance features in BBC Two – An Hour To Save Your Life (#AHTSYL) – 3-part series starting 4th March, 9pm
This new series looks at innovations in emergency medicine and the improvements in patient outcomes as a result of doctor-led pre-hospital care and fast-tracking heart attack/cardiac arrest, stroke and trauma patients to specialist centres.
It was filmed over the summer of 2013, spending two months with London’s Air Ambulance including with our Physician Response Unit (PRU), a medical emergency fast response team who are tasked to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients, at The Royal London and London Chest Hospitals and with the London Ambulance Service. Filming also took place in Nottingham and Birmingham.
Across the three programmes, nine patient stories are featured, five of these are involving London’s Air Ambulance in the pre-hospital phase. The key clinicians involved in each patient case conducted in-depth retrospective interviews so the style of the programmes is very much clinicians taking the audience through what happens.
