Same Day Assist
Our Same Day Assist is an industry beating service.
We aim to get an English speaking UK registered health care professional to you or your family member of friends’ bedside the same day.
Same Day Assist is not a same day medical repatriation. Instead, we send a member of our team to help with the communication between the hospital, the patient, family members and if needed insurance companies. This will make the repatriation go as smoothly and quickly as possible, to get you home safe.
It is unlikely that we can provide a same day repatriation service because it will be unsafe. Because, we only escort our clients’ home when our medical team know the full extent of a patient’s injury or illness. But most importantly, we are able to provide the best care possible.
There are some exclusions to our Same Day Assist service. Usually, we can provide this service to most of Europe, and as far as Egypt and North Africa.
Please contact us for full exclusions and more details.
Air ambulance provisionWe work with trusted industry partners with cost effective air ambulances around the world. And we have the ability to move between commercial flights and an air ambulances.
Close protection and security provisionIn case you need a close protection team with you. Our partners can provide a team of former United Kingdom military experts with or without medical provision.
Ground ambulance provisionAs well as air ambulances, we are also able to provide ground ambulances. Sometimes we find that a patient movement by ground is more suitable than a flight. If this is the case, we will of course let you know!
