Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Charity (CMFT Charity) has reached £3.9 million for funds for a new helipad in central Manchester. The Time Saves Lives Helipad Appeal was established in September 2015 and thanks to all the supporters, the generous donations from County Air Ambulance Trust’s HELP and the Government’s LIBOR fines fund, they were able to collect all the funds needed in a year. As reported by Charity Today, they are proud to announce this during National Air Ambulance Week; which is the 19-25 September.

The new helipad will be the first of its kind in Central Manchester, operating 24 hours a day on the top of a multi-story car park in Grafton Street. The helipad will be connected to the hospitals by a high-level link bridge and roof top corridors. Hospitals such as the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Manchester Royal Infirmary and Saint Mary’s Hospital will be using the helipad. Together these hospitals receive over 1 million patients per year.
