Prince William will meet with clinicians, paramedics, pilots and crew members to discover more about the first responders’ work and the challenge of working in the capital.
The Duke of Cambridge, during his work as an air ambulance pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, has seen first-hand the impact first responders have when treating patients with critical injuries.
As Patron of the 30th Anniversary Campaign, the Duke will highlight the importance of the London Air Ambulance and promote the importance of those working on the frontline.
‘We are delighted that The Duke of Cambridge has accepted the role of Patron of the London’s Air Ambulance 30th Anniversary Campaign,’ CEO of London’s Air Ambulance Charity, Jonathan Jenkins said.
‘Through his support, we wait to raise awareness of the life-saving work carried out by us and buy air ambulances across the UK. Our crew face significant challenges when delivering our rapid response and cutting-edge medical treatments in London.
‘Through funds raised in our 30th year, we plan to improve our facilities to ensure we can respond even faster, enhance our training and ensure our crews have the facilities they need for their mental health and wellbeing.’
