Sophie of Wessex also sat down with former patients of Thames Valley Air Ambulance including Charlotte who was involved in a serious road traffic collision in 2013 which left her with life-threatening injuries. The care she received that day from the air ambulance inspired her to change her career and this year, she became a fully qualified paramedic.
