About us

OUR STORY

Event Medical Team was formed in 2012 for the sole purpose of providing the best event medical coverage available to event organisers and event promoters. For this reason Event Medical Team uses Paramedics, Ambulance Officers, Registered and Enrolled Nurses, Patient Transport Officers and Doctors.

Event Medical Team has licensing and accreditation by the Victorian Department of Health to provide our service to events across Victoria. This licensing allows our medical staff to carry pain relief, respiratory and cardiac drugs and other medications and when required administer these drugs onsite without an emergency ambulance or doctor being present. Event Medical Team has its own fully equipped ambulances, and staff trained in patient management techniques and procedures. All of our staff are experienced paid professionals and our staff have worked at some of the state’s highest profile events. The treatment of all patients is documented and these documents are available to you in our post event report.

Event Medical Team Pty Ltd is as ISO9001:2015 Accredited company, certificate # 460-1310. DHHS: Non – Emergency Patient Transport Number: 2019/2526.
