Prince William gets a new office
Britain’s Prince William will return to a newly-equipped base after his Christmas break.
The 33-year-old Duke of Cambridge, who is employed with the East Anglian Air Ambulance, will now work from a new purpose-built air ambulance base at Cambridge Airport and it’s hoped the office make-over will help the cew’s performance.
Crew member Dr Neil Berry revealed: “Our job involves very intense 20 to 30-minute bursts of activity which can be very high pressure and demanding. In between it is vital for us to remain relaxed and focused so that we can help patients to the best of our ability.”
Prince William – who is as an air ambulance rescue pilot for the Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Bedfordshire areas of England – will enjoy the benefit of improved sleeping areas, kit storage and a toaster, which was not allowed in the previous building because of safety concerns.
But the royal – who works four days a week and donates all his salary to charity – will importantly have somewhere to “decompress” after an incident, as the service regularly completes more than 150 missions each month.
He told The Telegraph newspaper: “It is also important that we can decompress after an incident and the new base has room for us to go off as a team, talk about it and try to understand what we’ve seen.”
