Film Crew Expedition Medical Support - Medics and Equipment

Expedition and Wilderness Medicine training courses accredited by the Wilderness Medicine Society

At Expedition & Wilderness Medicine we are aware that TV projects are getting more adventurous and travelling to more remote environments. In these circumstances it is vitally important to have a qualified doctor or medical professional on site should the unexpected happen. Many locations do not have first world medical facilities and an Expedition & Wilderness Medicine remote medic equipped with the latest mobile medical kit and satellite communication can provide the peace of mind to allow you to focus on the production of your project. 

We can provide full medical cover for production teams and celebrities on your television or photographic project worldwide. We have an impressive portfolio of experienced medical professionals on our books, many of whom have media experience both on and off camera. Using Expedition and Wilderness Medicine to provide your medical cover resolves some of the most important logistical and safety considerations of foreign travel in remote environments.   Through our ties with Across the Divide Expeditions we are also able to assist in the provision of outdoor specialists and logistical support in the world's most remote locations.

"Behind every challenge and adventure is a logistics team that work tirelessly behind the scenes. Expedition & Wilderness Medicine provide the support and logistics that ensured a safe and successful adventure. They organised the event in record time without compromising safety or quality.

Quite simply, we couldn't have done it without them".
   Ben Fogle
