London's Air Ambulance charity was established because of a group of committed, determined and pioneering individuals who saw a way to save more lives, despite the medical establishment view at the time that patients with critical injuries could only be treated effectively in hospital. Today the service has been transformed from an anti-establishment pioneer, operating at the margins of emergency medicine, to a global leader of rapid response and critical care, providing support in moments of greatest need, such as advanced trauma response to a terrorist attack.
Our pioneering spirit continues to drive our constant self-evaluation and innovation to understand what we can do to save more lives. We continue to use our pioneering spirit to look for new ways to save more lives. We research and develop new innovations in treating severely injured patients before they get to hospital.
We care about people and put them at the heart of everything we do. We are kind, respectful and always keen to listen to feedback.
We are prepared to achieve our mission in challenging environments. We are authentic, honest and not afraid to challenge and take calculated risks.
We embrace and lead change through our innovation and creativity. We are constantly learning, both from our successes and from our failures to make sure we are always striving to improve.
