Many of our staff have a frontline NHS background, ensuring both you, your guests, and participants have the highest level of patient care available and unrivalled service.
Does my medical provider need to be CQC registered?
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the governing body for all health care providers in the UK. From hospitals to care homes, ambulance services to dentists, and everything in between. This is to ensure they are operating to the highest levels of patient care.
First aid providers don’t currently require registration. However, should a participant need to be transported off-site, then registration would be required? The requirements for medical cover at events is set out in the purple guide (www.thepurpleguide.co.uk).
A change took place in 2016, which means it is now a requirement to have the ability to transfer to the hospital without relying on the NHS at all.
However, with the smallest, low-risk events, and with the pressures growing on the local ambulance services, do you want your guests to face long waits?
Therefore, this is why event providers need to work with their medical providers to consider, on all but the smallest events, how they are going to deal with injuries and illnesses.
Wouldn’t you prefer to have peace of mind that your medical provider has been inspected to ensure the highest standards are met, is it worth the risk?
