Do you need medical cover?
In the UK, agriculture takes many forms but is loosely divided into arable and pastoral
farming. Many farms will combine both and there is increasing uptake in organic farming.
Within farming, there are many traditions passed on from generation to generation,
however, science now plays an increasingly important contribution, to ensure crops remain
disease free and livestock is in the of best health. All of these interests and developments have made agriculture events and trade show more popular.
Each event is unique, but all event organisers have a duty to ensure the health and safety of its visitors. This can be achieved by engaging appropriate event medical services. Medic 1 offers a bespoke service that takes into account all factors that contribute to the safe and effective care of your visitors.
These may include, use of heavy machinery, showing of large animals, equestrian events and scientific workshops all of which brings a level of risk. Event organisers have a duty of care to their visitors. In the event that visitors become unwell, perhaps suffering a heart attack or other medical condition, you are required to provide appropriate First Aid and Ambulance cover.
Medic 1 crews are experienced in dealing with patients at events; we assess, monitor and treat on site, when appropriate. If an emergency dictates that a patient must be transported off-site, we will work with your team to ensure that there is minimum disruption to your event.
Should you, as a client wish to proceed with that quote, we can also assist in the planning of your event by attending SAG meetings if required and by completing a finalised medical risk assessment and medical plan, to ensure your event is resourced accurately and is in line with the latest Health & Safety regulations and Purple Guide recommendations. We fully understand that circumstances can change, and so a re-evaluation of the risk assessment may be required at some point. This is no problem at all; we will work with you in making any amendments needed to ensure that medical cover is, once again, suitable to your needs. This may result in the level of resources being altered, which may also cause an alteration to the original cost, however, this will be discussed fully with you and confirmed at the time.
Every member of our highly skilled team are experienced in assessing, treating and monitoring patients on site where appropriate, and also in assessing when a patient requires additional treatment at a hospital. Medic 1 cover a wide variety of events and venues and are fully trained in de-escalation and communicating with intoxicated patients. We have a variety of resources available and, depending on the outcome of your event’s risk assessment, you may be provided with, or request, any of the following:
