Huge queues to meet crew at Southampton Open Day

Hundreds of visitors queued to meet the crew and see our helicopter during a packed open day at Southampton General Hospital.

We work closely with clinical partners based at the hospital and were invited to join staff for a chance to take a look behind the scenes on Saturday.

Huge queues formed as soon as the helicopter landed on the hospital’s helipad. Visitors were able to find out more about the transfer service for critically ill children by chatting to staff about our work and how we rely on the public to keep flying.

We are the only helicopter emergency transfer service in the country dedicated to children.
