Planning an event??
When it comes to organising an event, be it a small local fete or a large music festival, the safety of your guests and participants is at the core of your planning, this is where Point to Point services come in. From our Herefordshire base, we have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to events from a classical music recital to an equestrian event or even a multi-day music festival, and everything in between our professional management team will work with you and the safety groups to ensure the level of cover needed is achieved on a budget.
From a solo first aider to a full medical team and treatment centres with response vehicles and ambulances we can provide the cover you need all with fair and transparent pricing agreed upfront. Our experienced teams include first aiders, emergency first responders, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses and doctors all with a wealth of experience, many with a frontline NHS background, ensuring both you, your guests and participants have the highest level of patient care available and a service which is unrivalled.
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 to ensure they are operating to the highest levels of patient care. First aid providers dont 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 hospital without relying on the NHS at all but the smallest, low risk events and with the pressures growing on the local ambulance services do you want your guests to face long waits??
This is why event providers need to work with their medical provider 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 really worth the risk??
