School Medical Cover
School medical cover is something we pride ourselves on at Ambulance Services 24. Our medical team have years of experience in providing support to in-house nursing staff as well as curricular and after hours sporting events and private functions. Since 2013 we have provided pitch-side medical teams and health-centre staff for multiple private Schools, our team’s enhanced clearance supports the Schools in upholding their safeguarding requirements and the skill level of our team allows us to cater for all of our clients requirements.
We have a range of staff and vehicles which will cater for your school’s specific pitch side requirements. Our pitch-side medical teams have all undertaken extra training in neck injuries and head/concussion assessments in line with the Rugby Union Federation (RUF) guidelines, and are able to respond on foot or with our 4×4 vehicles suited for fields, sporting areas and cross country excercises.
Health Centre Staff
Should you find that your health centre staff are potentially going to be on long term leave or are struggling to cover shifts at short notice due to illness, our standby Nursing/Medical team can usually cover shifts with less than 24 hours notice to ensure that your health centre is safely staffed to cater for your students’ health requirements. All staff hold enhanced DBS clearance and extra safeguarding checks.
Leo and his team were absolutely exceptional and dealt professionally and efficiently with all issues, however particularly a severe head injury, which as a consequence involved a young participant having a fit and becoming unconscious. I am happy to admit that faced with this scenario I was shocked and unsure of what to do, however the team reacted brilliantly, caring for the patient and stabilising him before moving him to the local A+E. Happily the participant made a full recovery and had no lasting damage, which was in no small part due to the excellent care the team provided.
