My role is Patient Liaison Officer and Sub-Editor of Helipad. When we hear from a patient I can identify which aircrew attended and, often, facilitate a reunion between a patient and a paramedic and organise visits to our airbase. Editing our Helipad magazine, produced three times a year, includes collating informative and interesting features and images from around the beautiful county of Devon as well as news articles about the charity and writing emotive patient stories,which illustrate the diversity of jobs our aircrew attend. My thanks to Julian, our Designer, and everyone who contributes!

It’s always so rewarding to hear from the people we help and lovely to be able to let the aircrew know the progress of their patients, especially when there’s been a good outcome from a traumatic incident. Organising patient visits to the airbase is a chance to meet the very people we have helped and can prove hugely beneficial to a patient’s recovery. Working with the people we’ve helped, particularly when they allow us to re-tell their story, enables us to promote the work of the charity through our magazine, website and social media platforms.
