The Philosophy

 

SportsMedics Ltd was formed in 2014 as a response to the increasingly recognised need for tailored high-level medical treatment at sporting/mass participation events. Event organisers are realising that a greater standard of care is necessary for their participants in order to relieve needless pressure on hospitals and to enhance the experience of those taking part. SportsMedics has been specificially designed to meet these demands by providing experienced doctors and nurses with an ethos derived from the growing medical speciality of Sports and Exercise Medicine.

What We Offer

 

We specialise in providing you with an experienced medical director to oversee the planning and execution of outstanding medical care at your event. We can also supplement this with teams of doctors and nurses, depending on your needs, to provide some of the high-quality of care that SportsMedics is becoming renowned for in the event world.

In 2020 SportsMedics will be undergoing the exciting development of adding in first aiders to our provision. Our first aiders will all have FREC 3 as a minimum training standard, and will be given additional training in sports and exercise medicine injuries and illnesses.

 

All of our doctors are either specialists in Sports Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Anaesthetics or Orthopaedics or have significant experience providing medical services at events. Likewise, our nurses all specialise in Emergency Medicine or have vast levels of experience working in the pre-hospital setting.

 

Our medical director is a Sports and Exercise Medicine Consultant who has been involved in a variety of elite and amateur sport, up to and including international level events such as London 2012 Olympics and Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014. This has included overseeing medical services for both team and individual sport, as well as larger-scale mass partipation events.
