Location Medical @London2017 World Para Athletics Championships ‏@ParaAthletics #London2017

Location Medical Services Ltd is the official provider of ambulance and paramedic services for the London 2017 World Para Athletics Championships in the London Stadium. 

Our teams are working alongside the volunteer doctors, nurses, physios and other medical staff who provide the on site medical cover for the stadium, all the practice venues, the "Heros' Village" on the South Park Lawns and run polyclinics at the athletes' hotels throughout the event. 

Many of the medical team last worked together during London 2012 and this years Athletics events have really rekindled the "Olympic" feel with the medical teams building on the unique major sporting events experience build up in 2012.

Location Medical Services are contracted to provide ambulances and crews based in the stadium and on South Park Lawns every day through the rehearsals and live games in July. 

We have also been contracted to provide services at the IAAF World Championships in August.

"World Record" Barrel Roll Stunt for Jaguar E Pace Launch

Last night saw the launch of the new Jaguar E Pace at London's Excel Centre. As well as some spectacular car stunts and visual effects, the launch involved a World Record barrel roll by Stunt Driver Terry Grant. 

Location Medical Services were there with paramedic cover throughout the show. We also arranged and coordinated the fire and rescue provision.

Last nights show was the result of not only a weeks rehearsal at the Excel but 3 months of planning and testing for the stunt at Santa Pod race Track in Bedfordshire. Location Medical Services were there throughout the whole planning and testing process and, after so much hard work by the team at Imagination Events and Jaguar Land Rover, its great that the event was a huge success...and Terry got his world record!

LMS working with BBC News in the aftermath of Grenfell Tower Fire.

In the hours and days following the horrific Grenfell Tower fire in West London Location Medical Services rapidly deployed Doctors and Paramedic Practitioners to work with BBC Occupational Health and counselling teams in order to provide "round the clock" support for the army of BBC staff deployed to the scene and local newsrooms.

BBC Health & Safety management demonstrated an rapid and absolute commitment to ensuring the safety and welfare of their staff throughout the operation - despite the long hours and early environmental hazards and distressing scenes encountered by their teams.

From the outset the BBC were also committed to ensuring that their team welfare had no impact on overstretched NHS resources in the area throughout the operation, so set up a walk-in medical facility in New Broadcasting House.

Its a pleasure to work with such a far-sighted organisation so clearly committed to the safety and welfare of their staff.

Record £46 Million Raised by BBC Children in Need

Location Medical Sere pleased to be asked back for the 10th year to support this headline  fundraising event for the BBC. We had teams in Elstree Studios on Friday (the studios being temporarily vacated by Strictly come Dancing - which we are still covering up in Blackpool). We were  also involved with many of the pre-recorded stunts and sketches.  

£46 Million is a phenomenal total raised and it was a great show that we (and everyone else involved) are proud to be a part of.

London to Brighton Classic Car Run 

London to Brighton Classic Car Run 

LMS were fortunate to be involved in the classic London to Brighton car run.

Starting in Hyde Park we had medics as bike responders, in rapid response cars and paramedic ambulances covering the whole route, 

The participants are dedicated to getting their machines to the finish,  occasionally doing some engineering enroute, this was the only source a couple of very minor injuries that required our attention. 

Large crowds formed at the finish to see the incredible sight of these many priceless vintage vehicles cross the finish line.

The weather was a touch bracing, however, this was more than made up for by the absence of the forecast rain and glorious blue skies.
