Kings College Hospital is a UK Major Trauma centre. A new helipad with night operation capability opened on the 11th floor of the Ruskin Wing in Oct 2016. This new rooftop helipad was the first in Britain to incorporate a Deck Integrated Fire Fighting System (DIFFS).

This replaced the ad hoc site in Ruskin Park (just to the south west of the hospital estate but across the railway line) and reduced patient transfer time by 20 minutes.
