What is an Event Medical Services Risk Calculator
Event planning can be a daunting task & many event organisers are unsure of the level of Event Medical Services they require. ‘How many medical staff do we need?’ and ‘Do we need an ambulance?’ are common questions that event organisers have but don’t have the answers to, our Event Medical Services Risk Calculator may be able to clear up any questions. Working with the Health and Safety Executives Purple Guide for event planning, we designed our Event Medical Services Risk Calculator based on the HSE’s scoring system. This has been developed to guide you through the planning for medical provision that you may need for your event.
It is important to remember that an Ambulance by definition is used to transport patients to hospital when required and so your provider MUST be registered with the Care Quality Commission. The Health and Safety Executive also stress that Ambulances should not be used as a treatment centre/area.
In order to get a better idea of the level of event medical services your event requires, simply answer the questions on the Event Medical Services Risk Calculator below to get your score and then use the conversion table to see what level of medical services you might require at your event.
