The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care

For twenty-five years, London’s Air Ambulance has been a leader in the development and practice of pre-hospital care in the U.K. and abroad. 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 air ambulances in the U.K., Europe and Australia.

The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care at London’s Air Ambulance 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.


The Institute remains closely aligned with London’s Air Ambulance, sharing its clinical and organisational leadership teams; drawing on its case studies to inform priorities; and collaborating to develop new clinical interventions, conduct research and educate the next generation of pre-hospital care experts.
