Partly funded by The HELP (Helicopter Emergency Landing Pads) Appeal, a 25m by 25m helipad will enable seriously ill patients to be brought by air ambulance for treatment at the hospital's Major Trauma Centre.
A lift shaft in the middle of the wing is being built so that patients can be lowered quickly and smoothly into the hands of medical experts.
The helipad - which is due for completion in January 2014 - is being constructed by Miller Construction and will be the second hospital helipad in London and the first south of the river.
