COVID-19 (Event Medical)

COVID-19

As we move into a new post-coronavirus normal, we are continuously reviewing our response and how we will effectively manage our operations at events to ensure all necessary safety measures are in place. This includes keeping our staff and patients safe as well as the support we can offer to your event.

This page provides information on what we are doing to protect our staff and patients, and the support we can provide to your event. Copies of all our risk assessments and COVID plans are available to confirmed clients, enforcement agencies and NHS bodies.

  •   Keeping our Staff and Patients Safe
  •   Supporting Your Event

Our treatment centres will be setup to ensure social distancing is adhered to, new signage and barrier systems have been obtained and procedures in place to screen patients prior to entering any treatment centre. We also have adequate stocks of PPE (face masks, face shields, hand sanitiser, aprons, etc) to help keep our team safe.

As a responsible event medical provider, lots of planning has gone into making sure we keep both our staff and patients safe at the events we attend. We have completed our coronavirus risk assessment, COVID-19 Event Plan and treatment centre layout plans which are all available to our clients. These form part of our response to how we will effectively manage our operations at events to ensure all safety measures are in place for our staff and patients.

Key plans in place include:

  • We have large stocks of PPE available to keep both our staff/contractors and patients safe at all times
  • All furniture (beds, chairs, tables) and equipment are cleaned at hourly intervals during the event
  • All furniture and equipment in use at events are tracked and deep cleaned at the end of each event
  • Increased use of radio communication between team members and event partners (organisers, marshalls, support staff)
  • Limiting the number of people within our treatment centres to maintain social distancing
  • Treatment centre layout plans to create a one-way system in and out and to encourage queuing at a safe distance from those working inside
  • Deep cleaning of vehicles after each event, or remaining unused for 72 hours
  • COVID19 workplace training for all our staff and contractors
  • Regular monitoring and updates of policies and procedures shared via our Contractor Portal

We have also been assisting our customers in helping to get safety measures in place and advising on social distancing, hand cleaning, high-risk area cleaning and other precautions.

We are also able to provide support in the screening of persons entering your event. Please contact us to discuss how we can support your event with this service.

As part of organising your event, you will need to show that your event can take place safely during the current COVID-19 pandemic. You will need to create a COVID-19 risk assessment which shows you can deliver your event in a COVID-19 secure manner. As part of this risk assessment, you will need to consider the medical impact on your event.

Whether we are your sole medical provider, or contracted to work alongside other providers at your event, we can support you with:

  • Having detection systems in place to measure temperature at entry
  • Having measures in place to identify COVID-19 symptomatic people at entry & during event
  • Management of staff/visitor contact information for NHS test and trace inline with data protection principles
  • Ability to manage COVID-19 symptomatic people
  • Isolation facilities in place to separate COVID-19 symptomatic people
  • Provision to triage and divert symptomatic people to appropriate medical care
  • Provision of COVID-19 Support Officers
  • Provision PPE Disposal Bins for used face coverings, masks and gloves
