Medical Escorts on Commercial Flights

When Patient's condition allows, Mediaviation can arrange medical repatriations on scheduled commercial flights. This quite often is the most cost-effective way of bringing the Patient back home. Our Operations and Medical Repatriation Team will organise the full bed to bed service which includes arranging the fit-to-fly certificate from Patient's doctor and liaising with commercial airlines to fly Patient back either in a sitting position or on a stretcher. The Patient is escorted by a Mediaviation's nurse, paramedic or doctor, depending on Patient's medical condition.

Mediaviation only employs the most experienced NHS personnel, including senior critical care doctors, Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registered nurses and Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC) Registered paramedics.

Doctors - All doctors employed by Mediaviation have at least 3 years post graduate experience and specialise in areas including Critical Care, Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care. All the doctors we use for medical flight transfers and private air repatriation will have experience and training in Aero-Medical Transfers and Medical Flights and are registered with the General Medical council (GMC).

Nurses - Mediaviation nurses are recruited at senior level within the NHS and have backgrounds in pre hospital care, emergency medicine and critical care.

Paramedics - Mediaviation only employ NHS paramedics with a minimum of 3 years experience. UK flight paramedics can autonomously administer drugs for a wide range of medical conditions
