Your event medical services should never be left to chance!
We will work with our clients on a 4 Step Process to ensure you get the best possible medical cover in line with your wishes and needs as well as the legal requirements of your event.
All good plans start with effective communication, we talk to you via email and always follow-up with a telephone call to ensure we have captured your event requirements.
2. Deign & Quote
We then design an event or training needs specific plan that meets your needs without un-necessary expense or staffing. All our quotes are bespoke to your actual needs rather than off the shelf packages that often are not fit for purpose.
3. Consultation and Design
We then consult with you after the quote and ensure you are happy with the planned event or training. We can also help with all other aspects of H&S if required, we have a wide range of experience and can work with your team to ensure H&S compliance.
The day before we call to ensure all is ok and on the day arrive in plenty of time to set up and implement the cover or training requirements of your bespoke package.
