REPATRIATION INDUSTRY SET TO BE TAKEN BY STORM
The medical repatriation industry is set to face tough competition when Storm Aeromedical’s complete bed-to-bed repatriation service when it begins operations on 15 October.
Part of the successful Storm Aviation Group – the worldwide aviation recruitment agency – Storm Aeromedical is a 24-hour specialist repatriation company that caters for all medical emergencies.
Alida Benton, Head of Aeromedical Division said, “Storm Aeromedical is proud to provide an expert medical repatriation service which offers insurers and assistance companies the opportunity to alleviate the problems associated with time-consuming, complicated and often highly stressful repatriations. Our expert team will produce complete reports and regular updates to keep insurers fully briefed of every patient’s status, thus providing an efficient and ultimately cost-effective bespoke service.”
Storm has recruited a highly qualified medical team that consists of experienced doctors and nurses and full Air Ambulance Services. Medical crews for each repatriation are chosen based on the needs of the individual patient, and Storm Aeromedical can provide specialist crews and equipment including incubators for paediatric and neonatal cases, enabling the safe repatriation of children and babies.
Staffed by skilled repatriation and medical assistance professionals from their headquarters near Gatwick Airport, Storm will arrange all commercial flight transfers, ground services at each end of the journey and organise receiving hospitals by liasing with treating and receiving doctors.
A Fast Response Team – who are trained to respond to major trauma events and can be mobilised at short notice from anywhere around the world - will be introduced shortly, so clients can be evacuated home as quickly and safely as possible.
In addition to the repatriation service, Storm offers fully accredited trauma and bereavement counselling for patients and relatives who may have been affected by their experience.
