Lights, Camera, Ambulance!

Lights, Camera, Ambulance!

The GB-EMS Group offers medical cover to almost anyone or any scenario that requires it, and this includes movie, commercial and TV sets and locations.

As a team we have many decades of medical cover experience, much of which includes some well-known productions. Furthermore, we offer clinical staff ranging from First Aiders to Paramedics and Doctors that have many more years’ experience at working on live sets, locations and studios that can bring clients a wealth of reliability and flexibility working around cast and crew to make sure that when a medical problem occur they react quickly and efficiently.

Our team covers everything from Rig/Derig, through to specialist Stunts and everything in between, ensuring the most appropriate skill set is available. Name Drop! We have previously worked with clients including the BBC, Evolutionary Films and other’s we’re not allowed to mention in public... on a whole manner of productions, where often 24-hour cover has been needed on live sets being used for weeks or even months.

Our abundance of staff at all skill levels and shift pattern approach to our service means we can operate this level of service and provide clients with the level of medical cover they really require. We tend also to restrict cover of specific productions, to a small team, ensuring continuity of care and allowing your cast and crew to build a rapport with their medical team.

We also keenly advertise (as a CQC Registered Ambulance Service) the fact that we can provide and often recommend conveying ambulance resources so that should a medical emergency happen on a shoot, there is no need to call 999 for NHS assistance as we can contain the incident and convey the patient to hospital ourselves, which in most cases may be a quicker and more appropriate response for a patient especially for more remote locations.

As much as we work keenly with larger productions we equally have experience working with smaller production companies who are running with much smaller budgets and shorter timescales. No job is to big or small for us and we’re here to make sure that health and safety (medical) requirements are not just met but, where possible, safely exceeded for all clients. Our flexible approach means that within reason although we are based on the UK South Coast we can provide cover almost anywhere in Europe, and we are used to providing bespoke, tailored, yet realistic quotes and recommendations to all enquiries.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for treatment, I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a Paramedic for people like you. If you let my patient go now that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will cannulate you.
