Acos Medical provides full-service medical cover for large events, especially those with complex needs, and which require a doctor-led approach for high-quality care.
Acos Medical manage the entire process, from risk assessment, through to quality-assured provision on the day.
We work with a range of industry partners, and place our own trusted staff in key management positions, and always have quality assurance on-site to ensure that event organisers are getting what they need.
Acos Medical is different. Our operations are overseen personally by Medical Director, Raychel Oaten, an emergency medicine consultant. Raychel leads our senior team, and brings a wealth of experience in event medicine.
If you run a large event, we know that medical cover is complicated, and that is where we can really add value. By deploying the right resources we can help ensure that the people at your event are treated quickly and effectively. We pride ourselves on our ability to treat patients onsite by bringing A&E to them.
Why our approach works for event organisers
We aim to treat patients on site, rather than transporting to hospital, and this has a number of benefits for organisers.
It keeps people at your event happier! Nothing is going to ruin people’s experience more than having to go to hospital, or having a friend taken. Especially if they are discharged a short while later.
Safety advisory groups like events that can manage their medical cover well. Getting approval for your event is easier when you demonstrate commitment to safety.
Types of event
We specialise in large events, with complex needs, but we do provide cover for smaller events, especially those for charity and the military. We always provide high-quality cover, whatever the size.
We have particular expertise in covering music festivals, looking after over 80,000 people on site. These are demanding environments, but our team thrive on these occasions. Find out more about our services for music festivals.
Another area of specialism for us is large running events, such as marathons, half-marathons, and 10k races. These can be difficult to cover over distance, so we deploy resources which mean we can exceed the requirements of RunBritain.
