We thank the public for their support after one of our vehicles was vandalised

The Chief Executive of London Ambulance Service has thanked the public for their support after one of the Service’s vehicles was vandalised during World Cup celebrations, and appealed for the public’s continued support by using the ambulance service wisely.

In a week when demand on the ambulance service is expected to remain very high – with the warm weather continuing and the World Cup semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday, Londoners are being urged to only call 999 in a genuine emergency and consider using alternative healthcare options.

The Service celebrates seventy years of the NHS – and looks to the future

The NHS was established 70 years ago on 5 July 2018. London Ambulance Service became an NHS Trust in April 1996, having been established to our current formation in 1965 with the merger of nine existing services.

Here we share some stories of people who have worked in our team in the decades since 1948 and some historic photographs of vehicles, stations and uniforms throughout the years.
