Medical care for audience

Make sure you will have enough medical assistance and ambulances onsite and liaise with your local NHS and ambulance service so they can balance your needs against their local capacity.

Except for small, low-risk events where ambulances may not be required, and at events where they are not onsite, plans should be drawn up in conjunction with the local NHS ambulance service to clarify how patients will be taken to hospital. The Events Industry Forum’s Purple guide (opens in a new tab) includes example first-aid and medical assessments for an audience at an event.
