Are you able to transport the patient to hospital?
1300MEDICS will not provide transport of any patient through to hospital. This is the role of the statutory (state) ambulance service. Should a patient require transport though to hospital, 1300MEDICS will commence treatment of the patient, while calling 000 and arranging the state ambulance service to attend.
Should your event be held over a large area / property (ie: Tough Mudder), we are able to transport the patient around the property to either our own medical/treatment area or to a suitable location to handover the patient to the ambulance.
