BAPS UK supports the London’s Air Ambulance Service
Saturday 9 May 2009

The CEO of the London’s Air Ambulance Service, Mr. Andrew Cameron visited BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London on Saturday 9 May 2009. The London’s Air Ambulance Service began in 1989 and is based at the Royal London Hospital. Since its inception, 21,000 flights have been completed to attend various incidents.

The Air Ambulance is a helicopter service that provides patients the best opportunities of survival, delivering pre-hospital care by equipping itself with an experienced trauma doctor and paramedic to the scene of serious incidents in the Greater London area stretching the M25 orbital motorway.

The London’s Air Ambulance Team has been involved in all major London incidents, including train accidents and terror attacks. The Service also provides support for incidents including major road traffic collisions, stabbings, shootings, falls from height, falls under trains, damage to brain or spine and penetrating injuries.

The Service also runs rapid response cars when the helicopter is offline: at night, whilst being serviced and during bad weather. The Service relies on donations and BAPS UK presented Mr. Cameron with a cheque for £1,001 to support the Air Ambulance Service continue its good work in helping to save lives. This donation is part of BAPS UK’s continued commitment to support organisations serving the needs of the local community and London as a whole.

Mr. Cameron expressed his gratitude and sincere thanks to BAPS for their valuable contribution to the Service.
