About Events Medical Services

Your objective is simple; to run an event which is enjoyed by all who attend it, and which is remembered for all the right reasons. At the back of your mind though you know that there is the ever-present risk of accident or sudden illness, which can affect either your staff or visitors.

Naturally you want to ensure that you have medical cover in place to deal with such problems calmly and professionally, and with minimal disruption to your event. You also want the reassurance of knowing that the medical cover you have organised is the best available, and meets the ever-increasing number of guidelines and regulations in place.

This is where EMS Ltd come to your aid; we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive and professional service to event organisers. We tailor our service to the specific needs of your event, leaving you secure in the knowledge that, should the worst happen, you have the support of a highly trained team ready to come to the aid of your staff and visitors.

What we have to offer you

We believe that provision of quality medical care demonstrates to your staff and visitors that you genuinely care for their health and well-being, as well as meeting your obligations under Health and Safety legislation.

At EMS we can provide you with the complete package of medical cover, right through from the planning stage to post-event reporting. We can supply all your medical requirements, from a single first aider to a full field hospital with ambulance, pharmacy and logistic support.

We are also happy to offer stand-alone services as follows:

  • Risk assessment and advice on medical requirements
  • Advice on best practice and staff qualifications
  • Attendance at licensing hearings
  • Liaison with statutory health services
  • Production of medical support plan
  • Medical major incident planning
  • Provision of event day cover
  • Post event reporting
  • Audit of current medical provision

We are not a private ambulance service; like you we are event industry professionals, who share your priorities and understand the pressures of special events.

We are fully conversant with the Green and Purple Guides, and are happy to work to the specific requirements of any event governing body. We are also familiar with the requirements of RIDDOR and can help you comply with the duties imposed on you.
We are very happy to work alongside other healthcare providers to ensure a comprehensive and integrated medical provision for your event.

About the Company

EMS was established in 1999 to build upon the wide-ranging experience of its founding directors. Since then we have gone on to cover a diverse range of events across the Midlands and beyond, building a reputation for delivering a high-quality service at a competitive price. Our customers obviously think we're doing something right, as we have a satisfyingly high level of repeat business. We are not restricted by geographical boundaries; our only limit is your imagination.

We operate a fleet of vehicles, including front line ambulances, 4WD ambulances and a mobile treatment centre. All vehicles are equipped to modern standards.

We currently have over 80 staff on our books, and in 2002 we staffed some 1400 shifts. This makes us big enough to cope, but still small enough to give you the personal attention you expect.

As you would expect, we have full Employer, Public and Medical Liability Insurance cover, although we are please to report that we have a claim-free record to date.

We are full members of The Event Services Association (TESA) and are bound by their Code of Conduct and arbitration service in case of dispute.
