Dr Tony Joy
Clinical Lead PRU
Tony qualified in medicine from the University of Sheffield in 2004, shortly after which he volunteered as a doctor providing immediate disaster relief in Sri Lanka following the Boxing Day tsunami. His interest in trauma and emergency care developed, and he gained training in a variety of key trauma-related specialties at The Royal London Hospital including neurosurgery, vascular surgery and orthopaedic surgery before undertaking specialist Emergency Medicine training. In 2011/12 he was a Darzi Fellow in Clinical Leadership, and is particularly interested in human factors relating to clinical performance, team-work and patient safety. He is also passionate about health equality, illness and injury prevention, and improving the processes by which emergency healthcare is delivered.
Tony led the remodelling of our charity's Physician Response Unit, delivered in partnership with Barts Health and London Ambulance Service, in 2017. Tony now leads the service to deliver the emergency department to the patient.
‘Working for London’s Air Ambulance has been an ambition for many years, and I feel privileged to work with such an inspirational group of people in such a high-performing service’.
