"Whatever the situation, wherever it is, we will get you home"
WHAT WE OFFER
We offer access to a wide range of air ambulance aircraft to suite the patients’ needs, across the world. These can range from short, medium or long range jets, capable of taking one or two stretchers. In critical cases, air ambulances can be configured to "Advance Life Support" status, manned with a full medical team. We try our best to cater for any eventuality.
OUR FLIGHT MEDICAL TEAMS
We handpick our medical teams for their professionalism, ability and patient care skills. We draw our team from a pool of established doctors, nurses, paramedics and anaesthetists, all of whom have experience in the air ambulance field.
From the point of the initial call for help, our teams will liaise with the family, hospitals, and authorities, to build a complete picture of the case in hand. Once this information has been finalised, our team will make a base assessment, from which an informed strategy will be made to ensure a safe and effective evacuation can take place. Our focus is the patient, at all times.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU CALL US ...
When you make the initial call, we will need to …
- Take as much information as possible with regard the patient, status and background of case.
- Permission to obtain medical reports and information of the patient’s location
- Establish a provisional budget
- Establish a timescale for the potential evac.
Once we have this information, we will then make a provisional assessment with a suitable medical team, which aligns with the safest, and most financially pragmatic way to transport the patient. We will advise relatives and provide a full quotation as to the total cost expected. Once the go-ahead is given, our staff will plan a full bedside-to-bedside evacuation, according to the agreed timescale.
Funding can often be a great worry during these stressful times, and If necessary, we can help friends and families raise funds for the repatriation, using suitable payment options.
"Total bedside-to-bedside repatriations"
WHAT WE OFFER
For the non-critically ill patients, we can offer fully trained medical escorts on scheduled flights. If necessary, we can arrange for the patient to remain stretchered on the flight as well, for continuity of transport, and patient need. Airlines’ terms do vary, however, if stretchers are not allowed on a specific flight, there are options still available, such as being able utilise a first class fully-flat seat.
This method of transportation often works out to be a cheaper option, and removes the need for chartering a dedicated air ambulance, although still requires a suitable medical team to accompany the patient. This also can be a more suitable option in the event that relatives wish to accompany the patient, due to space restrictions on smaller aircraft.
For long-haul flights, depending on the patients’ condition, a team of two or more medical escorts maybe required as part of the medical assistance team. Once the provisional assessment is complete, our on-duty medical director will advise accordingly.
Our service includes full bedside-to-bedside service, utilising our own network of trusted providers both abroad, and in the UK. We will also make sure that every part of the transfer is monitored by our on-duty medical team leader, ensuring a smooth transit.
NB. Oxygen can be ordered through the airline, and our assistance co-ordinators will arrange all the medical clearances and tickets as required.

"We are here to help, in the most economical and safest way possible"
These days, it is very convenient to obtain travel insurance from many providers on the high street or on the internet. It is seen as a ‘must have’. Less common, however, is that research is done to establish whether the policy obtained, will cover all aspects of that particular holiday. Holiday makers find themselves doing adventurous activities, without the realisation that, if something goes wrong, they may not be covered by their policy.
Usually, this issue is uncovered at the point when a loved one is in a hospital bed, abroad, needing treatment, and a call made to the insurance provider reveals that cost incurred will have to be paid for privately. A far from ideal situation.
WHAT WE OFFER
Whilst we are not associated with any insurance firms, as an independent company, we are best positioned to offer you’re the most economical way of getting your loved one home, safely.
We have our own in house legal advisors who will look at your case, as soon as we are instructed, and we will help you finance the repatriation and get your loved one home. We will give you the straight and honest facts, so that you can make those difficult decisions with the proper and relevant information in front of you.
We will look at the situation and obtain the information together, medical reports, etc. Our medical team will design a ‘best-fit’ solution, and we will get your loved one home as soon, and as fast, as possible.
