On Tuesday (1st November 2016) Mike Gapes MP for Ilford South joined politicians from across London to pledge support for London's Air Ambulance, the charity that delivers a 24/7 advanced trauma team to critically injured people.
MPs, peers and GLA members gathered in Parliament to congratulate the charity on winning the Pride of Britain Emergency Services award. Advanced trauma doctors and paramedics also attended and set up medical demonstrations so guests could try out life-saving medical treatment on realistic dummies.
Politicians were also able to meet the helicopter pilots, fire crew and former patients at the event.
London’s Air Ambulance is there for the 10 million people who live and work in London. As influencers in your constituencies please do what you can to help us serve London and spread the message we are a charity”.
Since the charity started in 1989, it has treated more than 35,000 patients.
