There's no event too small!. Even at smaller events, event organisers still need to provide the right medical support. From sporting competitions, to music events; marathons to movie and TV cover, our team has a proven track record in making sure the right level of cover is implemented to suit individual needs. Our clients love our reliable, professional and affordable service where we go the extra mile so you don’t have to. We’re able to provide a whole range of medical resources and have the ability to efficiently and cost effectively cover events from a simple community event right up to mass gatherings and everything in-between.
Cycle Response Units (CRU) are very popular with smaller events as a way of our clinicians reaching patients more rapidly and effectively than vehicles. Especially in off road situations or in pedestrianised areas, our clinicians are able to make sure each patient has the best level of care possible.
We are easily able to cater for both indoor and outdoor events, where we will always supply appropriately skilled clinicians to ensure your event is covered to the best possible standard.
The GB-EMS team has many years of proven experience in providing and coordinating medical and welfare cover for large and high profile events where we fully understand and anticipate the logistics and demands these commitments often present.
Our approach to covering large events ensures that we provide the highest level of medical support possible. We regularly provide A&E style medical centres with full advanced life support and resuscitation capabilities in addition to the usual first aid treatment bays. The additional equipment and skills we provide on site reduces the requirement for patients to attend hospital in a lot of cases. Where patients do need to attend a local NHS hospital, in most cases they are referred directly to an appropriate service by one of our clinicians.
Our track record shows our ability to cope with a multitude of different scenarios and our highly robust clinical and operational governance system ensures we provide a high standard of quality and care to every patient, all of the time.
We regularly provide a full range of medical professionals ranging from qualified and experienced first aiders up to and including specialist paramedics and doctors. These are all supported by high quality resources including:

We have strong relations with a number of well known and high profile sporting events in various areas, so you can be reasure you are hiring a team with proven experience and know what to expect at your event.
We regularly support events of all sizes over multiple days, sometimes even over several weeks of round the clock cover.

Can totally rely on medical help given
I was very impressed with the service, very polite and professional. The team were happy and very helpful and so well equipped behind the scenes, just like a real hospital!
They were so caring, reassuring and listened to what i had to say. Extremely quick to come out and find me, got equipment out fast and did very well to try and diagnose the problem. Thank you so much
HRG continue to use GB-EMS as they are a professional service who understand the needs of first aid at roller derby events
We Liked the fact that they advised us on some options that we could take that would enhance our medical service/ provision without any additional costs
I got excellent care, the nurse was more than helpful.
I used this service a couple of years ago at the same event. Then as now. the service was excellent no waiting quick attention unlike my own doctor who you might see in three weeks time if you are lucky.
I booked medical support for an arduous charity event around the Isle of Wight. The booking process was simple and a very competitive rate with superb communication. On the day we had a paramedic and a Technician shadowing the event closely from a 4x4 ambulance and they were always close by should we have needed them. Fortunately they weren't required for anything serious but should they have been, having seen their professionalism, i'm absolutely sure we would have been in very capable hands. Highly Recommended.
Great service and got me back to work within an hour
