Five years ago three colleagues decided they could probably undertake commercial repatriations. On the 31st Oct 2014 four years ago, this vision became a reality.
After a lot of hard work and investment Flight Medic UK are now a leading provider of commercial medical repatriation around the globe.
As we have grown we have taken on an increasing range of UK registered health care professionals and now to compliment this we have taken on two case coordinators, whose jobs it is to take a case from initial enquiry to a full repatriation and everything in-between. We hope this new role will allow us to become even busier assisting people globally!
This week we present one of those team members, Rob Smith – Next week we present Jorge Garcia….
A little about Rob…
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, playing video games and exercising. I also used to take part in amateur boxing and plan to again one day.
What is your favourite food?
My favourite food is the classic British roast dinner – Beef, Yorkshire puddings, Roast potatoes, gravy, all the trimmings, yum!
What does home look like?
Home to me is when I am with my Fiance and identical twin boys. My boys are not always easy but they definitely are lovely!
What do you like the most about your role in Flight Medic UK?
What I like most about my role at FlightMedic is the rewarding feeling when we have repatriated a patient home. When we hear that they are with their family or on a hospital ward where everybody speaks their native language, there is such a rush knowing that we made that possible, particularly in the event of complex medical needs or challenging geography.
A Boeing 747 has been filled with jelly beans. How do you get them out?
If a Boeing 747 was full of jelly beans I would invite our Finance and Governance director, James Buck along as I know he would not struggle to eat them all!
