Festival Medical Cover

Location Medical Services provides professional medical support at numerous outdoor music events every year. These range from classical, jazz and contemporary outdoor evening concerts or one day festivals to "traditional" large scale green site music festivals with camping.

For larger events, our festival medical services team are able to set up and operate complete Field Hospitals staffed by experienced emergency doctors and advanced practitioners. We work to standards of care and offer scopes of practice that allow us to safely treat more patients on site than most event medical organisations. This means we minimise impact on local NHS services, offer a better service to all your visitors and keep your NHS SAG representatives happy so your next licence application sails through! . 

Medical Centre teams are supported by staff deployed across the festival site. These include pit teams, camp site medical centres, response teams and medics on bikes and golf buggy ambulances - used to keep ambulance movement to an absolute minimum (no one likes to see ambulances driving around an event). 

Having properly equipped and staffed paramedic ambulances on site means that the NHS are not called in for any hospital transfers that are required.

Festival Medical Services by Location Medical are a far cry from the basic "first aid tent" set up that some providers still rely on. Our services start with site visits, medical plans and liaising with NHS and SAG representative on your behalf. We deliver the medical services without causing you extra work or making additional demands "on the day" and we provide stats and de-brief documents when its all over - allowing you to get on with the more pressing matter of running your event. 

As a CQC registered provider we have excellent relationships with many NHS trusts and the trust we have built up over 20 years means pre-event communications with the NHS always go smoothly and without additional demands and conditions being imposed. 

 

Location Medical Services are in no way affiliated with Festival Medical Services - Somerset who are a registered charity.

Other Events

FEI.png

Endurance

Euston Park Endurance is a FEI event at this magnificent setting and the surrounding British countryside.  

Whilst the horses have little problem navigating the varied terrain over the 160km course, providing medical cover is a very real challenge requiring our 4x4 ambulance capability and specialist support.

Cycling

Cycling events have their own set of challenges for which expert medical cover is needed.  Alongside the exertional collapse conditions associated with high intensity sports, cycle events also have the added risk of high speed collisions including 'pile ups'.

LMS have a great deal of experience providing cover for road and track cycling events.   From command and control, response, advanced treatment  & transport we, strive to ensure we use the latest evidenced based practice including Hypotonic Saline,  Digital Core Temperature Management and  ETCo2 monitoring.  

Track Cycling

The track has the advantage of being in a in a small geographical however, especially on banked tracks, speeds can be high with consequential impact forces. Exertional Heat Stroke is a real concern and care of arrhythmias needs to be  of a high standard. 

Road racing

Road racing on closed roads with elite cyclists or on open roads with club or recreational riders logistics of static treatment posts, rapid response paramedics and ambulance cover must combine to provide comprehensive cover over potentially long distances.
