Flight Doctor support for holiday medical emergencies

Intensive Care Air Ambulance Services
 
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere at any time, often at the most inconvenient of times. Our Intensive Care Air Ambulance Service combines the skills of our Flight Doctors and Flight paramedics with those on the ground to provide seamless care during the patient’s repatriation home.

Depending on the medical requirement, support can be provided through road, commercial flight or private air ambulance. Arrangements can be made directly or through your insurance provider with us.

Common requirements are repatriations from:
• Cruise holidays were the patient has become unwell and requires repatriation after the initial treatment.
• Skiing holidays were the patient is suffering from breaks or heart / lung conditions.
• Family holidays involving the necessary repatriation of a child after a serious injury.

In all cases our aim is to provide you with a friendly, highly trained medical team, that will provide necessary support during a repatriation flight.
