Stephen has attended a reception in the House of Commons celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of London’s Air Ambulance Charity. He was joined by a number of MPs, ex-patients and operational staff.
London’s Air Ambulance charity provides pioneering care across the city and delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients. They treated sixty seven patients in East Ham last year, often landing in Central Park. They claim it takes on average two minutes to reach someone in need and are often able to treat five patients a day, bringing the hospital to a critical scene.
Speaking after the event, Stephen said: “I was pleased to meet some of the staff who make the remarkable efforts of London’s Air Ambulance possible. The life-saving work they do in East Ham and the rest of the city is vital, and I shall continue to support them.”
