Event First Aid

Are you running an event with people attending, competitiors and/or public? Or do you already have medical personnel or first aiders organised but need another Medic, or more qualified, for an event? Is there an element of risk at your event , for example, motorsport, equestrian, bouncy castles, sports such as athletics, football etc.  Have you considered emergency medical and first aid for your event? Can your event run without it?

Events that are organised with numbers of people attending have to provide First Aid cover. This is one of the most important aspect of any organised event. Sadly it is also the part that is often forgotten about! The First Aid is important for the Safety of both the General Public and those taking part and is the responsibility of the Event or Venue Manager. This is required by Health and Safety Executive and Law.

Although based in Nottinghamshire, I can help cover an event anywhere in the UK and occasionally abroad.

The types of events I can cover, and have, are numerous but include:

  • Motorsport
  • Sports
  • Paintballing
  • Triathlons
  • Orienteering
  • Running
  • CyclingIMAG0102-150x150
  • Fetes
  • Shows
  • Game Fairs
  • Corporate Events
  • Festivals
  • Displays
  • Exhibitions
  • Concerts
  • Film Sets

“We required First Aid for an Event last minute due to another contractor letting us down with long response times. Arthur ensured that he had a quote to us within the hour, and was very good value. The service on the day from the Paramedic and First Aiders was great, and I would happily recommend the company.”

“Arthur is a very knowledgeable person to work with on medical services. He brings a wealth of experience to the work and shows an excellent level of trust and willingness to work with other companies and agencies to produce the best level of care for any casualty. I’ve worked with him on many events this year and have found him good company and a very good person to have beside you when things go wrong.”
