Film/TV Unit Medics
Jigsaw Medical Services can provide unit medics including; EMT’s, Nurses, Paramedics & Doctors to the film/tv and media industries both in the UK and internationally. Our staff will always be equipped to deal quickly and effectively with both serious accidents, and minor injuries, illnesses and ailments on set or location. Our experience means we are used to working in the most challenging of environments and many of our staff have worked on long-term attachments with film/tv units in remote and hostile environments.
Our staff will always be deployed with a vast array of equipment, suitable for their skill level. All of our paramedics and doctors will carry the appropriate range of drugs for everything from coughs and colds to cardiac arrest drugs and intravenous painkillers. For more risky shots we can provide ambulance and paramedic standby cover in the unlikely event of serious injury during stunts and other ‘weird and wonderful’ shots.
We can provide the following resources to support our highly qualified staff if required:
Our response vehicles are either fully marked or unmarked, they are fully equipped to an advanced life support level (if manned by a paramedic) and are perfect for ensuring a clinician arrives at the scene in a timely manner. We also operate 4×4 response cars.
The minimum level of clinician we put on RRV’s are Technicians.
Our fully marked accident and emergency ambulances are fully equipped to deal with adult and paediatric patients in critical care level.
Ambulance crews usually consist of an emergency care assistant and paramedic or EMT.
By working in partnership with motorsport rescue providers, we are able to provide standby MSA approved motorsport rescue units to accompany our medical teams. This is a perfect solution for stunts involving vehicles where entrapment may be an issue.
