We will work with your existing medical team to support your elite athletes.
High value sports professionals need the best emergency care if the worst happens, to the same standards as provided by the 999 ambulance service. Medics24 will do this. Voluntary providers or those private services without the skill base provided by the 999 system may fall short when it really matters.
We will support existing sports medics so they can be confident that if emergency support is required an experienced and skilled team is at hand. We will work with sports medics to enhance their knowledge of the 'pre-hospital world' as inevitably sports medicine is limited in its emergency aspect. Just one of our paramedic staff often has the experience of 50-250 or more pre-hospital cardiac arrests under their belt. Experience that cannot be dismissed!
We will work with you to help provide the right medical cover for your event.
Special risks may present themselves to the organiser of an event depending on the size of a crowd, the event location, the makeup of a crowd, past history, activities taking place etc.
At an equestrian event severe chest, head and spinal injuries can occur. Boxing and martial arts competitors may sustain head injuries leading to unconsciousness. At motor sports high speed impact can cause internal injury. At music/pop events guests may engage in social drug use leading to life threatening collapse. The list goes on.
We will carry out a medical risk assessment to determine the best level of cover. We will complete a medical plan and liaise with the statutory NHS ambulance service to ensure 'joined up thinking'.
With the ability to provide emergency services personnel, and vehicles with advanced life support drugs and equipment, you can be confident that Medics24 are the very best private event medical service. We can provide fully crewed or single staffed high visibility vehicles, with visible and audible warning systems. Our 4x4 or conventional response/ambulance vehicles will provide a flexible mobile resource, allowing rapid access to the scene of an incident. Our 4x4 vehicles can bring life saving resources to a difficult terrain where other vehicles could not. Our conventional ambulance vehicles can transport patients to definitive care centres, with advanced care performed en route.
Our services are the professional choice. Such organisations as the British Army, the Football Association and the Premier League have recognised this. Please contact us so that we may discuss your needs. All services are fully covered with medical & public liability insurances.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Currently (Feb 2020) event medical services are not required to be registered with the CQC to ensure standards of care and safety. We find this untenable and so we have been registered since 2012. Customers and patients must have confidence in the standards of those helping them in their hour of need!
