Team story

[p]Follow us at [b]Starfish_elch[/b] to find out more![b] [/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]Our STaRfiSH team is raising money for The [b]S[/b]outh [b]T[/b]hames [b]R[/b]etrieval [b]S[/b]ervice (STRS), based at the Evelina London Children's Hospital, and [b]T[/b]he [b]C[/b]hildren's [b]A[/b]ir [b]A[/b]mbulance (TCAA), our flight team partners. [/p][p]STRS is responsible for supporting our district general hospital colleagues in the resuscitation and stabilisation, and then STRS transfer of critically ill children presenting in South London and the South East of England. Critically ill children are transferred into Paediatric Intensive care in London. The main PICU's for the South East are based at Evelina London Children's Hospital (the lead centre and home base for STRS) with partner PICU's at Kings College and St George's hospitals in South London. [/p][p]We have the wonderful task of being part of a team that provides life changing care to critically ill children, ensuring, in the vast majority of cases, that they can leave hospital well again and return to their families. [/p][p]We want to make the care we deliver even better from the start, and are trying to raise enough money to fund improved referral pathways for STRS to facilitate better information sharing by our DGH partners with ourselves and our PICU partners, to speed up the referral of critically ill children and ensure no essential information is lost along the way[/p][p]Out flight team partners at TCAA provide us with bespoke helicopter air ambulance to move children quickly out of our coastal hospitals, where it can often take two hours or longer for the STRS team to get to them. Air retrieval reduces that transit time to only 30 minutes. TCAA is entirely charitably funded and we are committed to continuing to support them as well as they do us.[/p][p]We have £2000 per person to raise for TCAA and £3000 per person to raise for STRS as a starting fundraising target. We need as much help as possible to do this![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Follow us at Starfish_elch! [/b][/p]

On behalf of Reuben

We are hugely grateful to the STRS and all the team at Evelina. They looked after our son when he had a bad case of bronchiolitis. The kindness and professionalism of everyone we met made a horrible situation not only bearable but life affirming.
