This episode of Londonist Out Loud was originally published on 24 December 2011, but circumstances beyond our control meant that it had to be taken offline almost immediately; we're proud now to be able to bring this extended episode to you.
This week’s episode is the second in a special four-part series visiting some of London’s most important institutions. Host N Quentin Woolf spends a day with the staff and crew of London's Air Ambulance. He witnesses first hand the incredible work done by the team, who fly out to deal with the most traumatic injuries around the capital many times a day.
This episode contains sections that some listeners may find disturbing. Note that the episode is longer than normal to better represent a day in the life of the London's Air Ambulance.
