Lord-Lieutenant Commissions New Emergency Vehicle - Lord Petre, the Lord-Lieutenant for Essex, attended the launch at Hylands House of our Enhanced Care Car.
The vehicle has been purchased and equipped with funds raised by many generous supporters and especially by those who regularly run the London Marathon in aid of our charity. The vehicle will regularly be seen in action carrying a doctor and a critical care paramedic. It was fully operational for the first time on the same evening that it was launched.
