Our Event Medical Cover
NWMS prides itself on offering a safe, high quality and well governed service. We do not compromise on safety to achieve a low price: any recommendations we make for a given level of event medical cover will be based on our experience and national guidelines, including the Purple Guide.
As a minimum all our first responders hold the First Response Emergency Care (FREC) 3 qualification. This qualification is considered the minimum level of training suitable for first aiders at events by the authors of the Purple Guide (Chapter 5, paragraph 22). All of our staff are trained to use a defibrillator and medical oxygen.
At all events we cover we will provide as a minimum:
- At least one Automated External Defibrillator
- Medical oxygen
- Standard first aid consumables
- An on-call senior clinician of at least paramedic grade
- A medical plan document
For events where there is a risk of traumatic injury we provide Penthrox, a safe and effective form of inhaled pain relief that our staff are trained to administer for moderate to severe pain.
To protect you and your customers NWMS holds full public and professional liability and medical malpractice insurances, with further details available on request.
