It is an unfortunate – but unavoidable fact that some people will be taken seriously ill whilst out of the country. Whether they are abroad on holiday, visiting relatives, or working abroad, they may suffer an illness that requires immediate treatment back home in the UK. At Medrescue, we have a fleet of Blue Light emergency ambulances available to assist in the medical repatriation of such patients.
AirMedrescue24 is a specialist division of the Medrescue Group providing dedicated Medical Repatriation Services. We provide global cover of land and air repatriations as well as remote and hostile medevac and medical escort teams. Here is what you can expect from us:
A medical emergency can occur anywhere in the world and at any time. Nobody likes to think about it, but having an accident or falling ill on holiday abroad can turn serious quickly. While initial treatment is carried out locally, most patients want to go home as soon as possible to receive further treatment in the United Kingdom. AirMedrescue24 guarantees that patients are treated in the best way possible while being close to supportive family and friends.
By definition, anybody who is being repatriated for medical reasons is likely to be in a serious condition. We liaise with your insurer prior to transfer to determine the best plan for repatriation. Our clinical staff are registered health care professionals, mostly paramedics and doctors with remote area medicine and extreme sports experience, they are supported by specialist rescue technicians where required.
Our staff, vehicles and equipment mean we can provide advanced life support and primary care in all environments no matter how harsh.
As experienced Medical Repatriation providers, we understand that time is of the essence during a medical repatriation. All our emergency transfer vehicles provide a Blue Light service during transfers. Each team is led by a trained and experienced paramedic, ensuring the patient’s safety is our top priority throughout the transfer process.

Our emergency medical repatriation teams operate round-the-clock, meaning we are on the scene when you (and your patient) need us to be.
