Medical Air Escort in UK
Why Use Air Medical Escort UK Services
Medical emergencies while traveling can be an overwhelming experience. Dealing with flights, insurance, medical facilities, and healthcare providers can make an already stressful situation worse. If you become ill or injured away from home, our air medical escort UK services will get you where you need to go, safely and worry-free.
What is an air medical escort?
If you are ill or injured but are not in need of an air ambulance, patients can travel on a commercial airline with medical support. A fully-trained physician, registered nurse, or paramedic will accompany you onboard, ensuring you receive the proper care during transport.
How to obtain an air medical escort?
The first step to getting an air medical escort is to contact LIFESUPPORT. Our air medical case managers will go over the procedure with you and handle all the arrangements, from booking the flight to recuring wheelchairs and stretchers or other equipment you may need for ground transportation.
What can I expect during the flight?
During your flight, the attending escort will continually monitor you, providing oxygen, medication or other medical treatment options when needed. Each member of our clinical team is specially trained in out-of-hospital transport medicine and flight physiology, so you know you will be in the best hands possible.
About our Flight Nurses?
Flight nurses are the heart and soul of every journey, ensuring the best possible medical care for all our patients.
Our flight nurses will also plan pre-flight meetings to go over our patients’ medical records, medicinal requirements, and other specific needs.
The flight nurses in LIFESUPPORT have a high level of clinical training and experience to work on commercial airlines as a medical escort attendant. In addition to the normal requirements of a registered nurse, they also have post-grad training in emergency nursing, including pediatric advanced life support, advanced life support, and pre-hospital trauma life support before they take to the skies.
What can I expect after the flight?
Once you have landed, your air medical escort will perform a detailed medical assessment to ensure there are no further complications. Then, the onboard clinician will fill out a report to hand over to the next healthcare team before you reach your final destination.
