THE construction of a new helipad at St Mary’s Hospital is well underway, with the work due to be completed by the end of March.

The £1.45 million helipad will enable patients with life-threatening injuries to be airlifted to Southampton General Hospital as quickly as possible.

Following a testing period once the work is completed, the service should be operational by late April.
