Initial care or ‘first aid’, when given quickly and effectively results in a better outcome for the patient during recuperation and recovery. We have the equipment, support, secure environments, technicians, paramedics and general first aiders to cover events in the South East. We do work nationally for larger events and offer support with your event management plan and lease with SAG on request. We have clinicians that are registered, qualified and insured to treat people with early intervention, the use of drugs and skills for the best outcomes of the patient.
Our ambulances are available for movement on site, to give blue light patient transport to hospital as well as remote treatment at your event. Wherever possible we take a person who is feeling unwell, sick or a non time critical casualty to our on-site treatment center, reverse any causes, treat and release or let them stay with us until they are confident to return to enjoy your event. We do everything for you, even booking in patients to hospital, reassuring and supporting relatives and ongoing follow up care throughout the event.
We can use your facilities, a room or pre-agreed area for treatment if this location is accessible, clean and sanitised, approved by us and we agree that it is a good location for treatment. All of our staff are confident, experienced, approachable and caring, well aware of the need for everyone at your event to feel secure and well looked after. We have constant walk around teams issuing hydration advice and sun cream where appropriate, all in communication with control, with staff welfare checks and event logs.
