Detail your services

This document details the terms of conditions of the services that Acute Medics provide:


1. Booking Confirmation:


Confirmation of booking for Event Medical Cover MUST be either in writing, email or SMS. There shall be no guarantee of provision of medical cover if you have not accepted our quotation on our online quote system Xero. A quotation is not a binding offer until you have accepted it and then received written confirmation either in writing, email or SMS. Once confirmation has been sent, you will be contractually obliged to pay all sums owed unless you meet the criteria for refund (see cancellation below).


2. Payment:

Payments must be made in full within 14 days of your event, in accordance with your quotation. If we provide services, you will be liable for the total amount owed. Late or non-payment charge of £50 will be added to the total amount owed if non-payment exceeds 14 days, then for every 7 days that payment is outstanding an additional £50 will be charged. Furthermore, you will be fully responsible for all court, legal or recovery agent’s fees associated with recovering such costs.


The times provided in your quotation will be the contracted timings and as such we reserve the right to leave the event 


at the finish time stated. Should your event continue beyond the scheduled finish time, you must contact the duty manager on 07960 540505 to ensure continuation of insured medical cover. If medical personnel are required to remain on site, additional charges will apply as outlined in your quotation. Costs for additional cover will be charged by the hour or part hour and can be explained by the duty manager.


3. Cancellation:

Should you wish to cancel or amend medical cover you must notify us by email and telephone. Late cancellation unless otherwise agreed in writing as part of your quotation will incur cancellation fees as below:


Less than 7 days notice: 100% charge

8 to 14 days noticed: 50% charge

More than 14 days notice: No charge


4. Your responsibilities:

As the organiser of the event, it is your responsibility to ensure a satisfactory Risk Assessment has been carried out for your event.


You must ensure that there is adequate security/Police personnel to ensure the safety of our staff.


If you provide a treatment area, you must ensure that it is clearly identifiable. The treatment area must be easily accessible, dry, covered and clean area. We can provide an adequate treatment area at an additional cost.


Please inform us whether you will or will not be able to provide refreshments for staff so that we can make provisions.


You must ensure that our emergency vehicles and personnel have free and clear access to and from the site of the event and adequate parking on hard standing for all vehicles. If parking is not available, we must be informed at booking.


You must ensure that all additional medical personnel at the event are made known to our personnel prior to the event commencing and that we hold clinical lead unless otherwise agreed in advance.


You must adhere to any request to suspend the event if warranted due to necessary treatments.

   

Your event staff should be made aware of where the first aid post, personnel and / or ambulance(s) are located, to assist any requests from any participants or spectators as to our locations.


Should the event be of such size that you are using maps or plans, our personnel should be provided with them. It is your responsibility to ensure an appropriate system / route of communication is made known to us.


You are responsible for ensuring that all the necessary licenses to operate your event have been obtained and we as  your medical services provider will provide medical cover based on the assumption that you are in possession of such licenses.


Failure to comply with the requirements of this contract may be treated by us as a fundamental breach of this Agreement, in which case we shall be entitled to immediately terminate our services but this will not affect our rights to be paid for our services (whether performed or not).

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have an adequate level of medical cover at any one time.


5. Our responsibilities:

We will provide medical services at your event to the level of cover you require. For example: If you require first aid  cover only, we will only provide basic first aid. Our personnel will only provide medical assistance to the limit of their  trained capability. Our services are provided subject to individual limitations, and should not be viewed as a substitute  for any need for registered nurses, doctors or paramedics at the Event (unless these staff has been specifically requested, booked and provided by us).


We may carry out our own risk assessments, but these are for our own purposes. You remain fully responsible for your  event. It may be necessary for our personnel to leave the event to obtain further medical care for any person we are  treating. We accept no liability should this mean that the event must cease, we encourage you to ensure you have adequate cover so that if some of our personnel have to leave site with a patient your event can continue unaffected. 

You are advised to arrange appropriate "Event cancellation insurance". We will not accept any liability for any loss you incur in relation to cancellation which could have been covered by such insurance.


Neither we nor our personnel shall be liable under any circumstances, for any damages to land or property in the event of access being required to a casualty or to allow egress from a site.

Neither we nor our personnel shall have any liability to you or any third party, for any loss, expense or damage of any nature, suffered or occurred arising from any breach of any condition of the Agreement, or any negligence or any breach of statutory or other duty or in any other way in connection with performance, or purported performance of or failure to perform the Agreement.


Nothing in this contract shall be taken to exclude liability to any patient for death or personal injury resulting from our (or our personnel's) negligence.


We shall not be liable for any failure in performance of any of our obligations under the Agreement caused by factors outside of our control (including but not limited to fire, storm, flood, traffic delays etc.).


6. Information provided to and by Acute Medics:

If, in our opinion, a suitable level of cover cannot be agreed, or, your event appears before or during your event to put  our staff at unacceptable risk of injury or illness, we reserve the right not to proceed with our services. However, it remains your sole responsibility as the body organising the event to ensure that the level of cover requested complies with all statutory regulations and requirements laid down by any governing body relating to such events.


Our willingness (and the fees quoted) to provide resources is made on the understanding that the details of the Event  submitted to us are accurate and correct. If we are notified of changes to these details, such as levels of resources,  duration, time or location of event, we reserve the right to revise our fees, or to reconsider our acceptance of the event. 


If upon arrival at the Event, the senior member or team leader in attendance considers the Event to be larger or at a  higher risk than stated on the booking form or subsequent correspondence, we reserve the right to withdraw from the  Event. In such circumstances all reasonable effort shall be made to advise the contact name at the time of booking of
the reasons for withdrawal. Should it be necessary at this stage to withdraw from the Event, full charges will apply for the resources provided, and we accept no liability for any loss you may incur due to the termination of the event in such  circumstances.
