Being taken ill or getting injured whilst abroad can be extremely upsetting, and the added worry of how you are going to get home can add more distress to what is already a difficult situation.
The good news is that if you have your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and have taken out the appropriate travel insurance, then this is usualy all taken care of for you, and interpreters arranged to help make sure you get the correct travel arrangements for your needs,
Mendip Medical Services are pleased to be able to support insurance companies and air ambulance operators, by providing a suitably qualified escort for your return journey, whether that be a doctor, nurse or paramedic. And once back in the UK, Mendip Medical Services can also provide a ground ambulance or other suitable vehicle for your onward transportation, whether that be to go back home, to a designated hospital or to other medical facilities.
We are also happy to work alongside other medical teams as may have been arranged and can guarantee that all transport provided will be safe and appropriate to the patient’s condition. Where required our drivers are qualified, authorised and fully insured to convey under emergency (bluelight) conditions should this be justified.
If you are an insurance company, air ambulance operator or someone else looking to make repatriation arrangements, then please call us on 01749 880733 to find out how Mendip Medical Services can help.
