Paramedic launches UK’s first comparison site for event medical cover

A comparison site for event medical cover and medical training – The Medical Network (www.themedicalnetwork.co.uk) – has been launched.


  Established by John Perry, a front-line paramedic and a specialist in event medical cover, this exciting platform aims to transform the sourcing and booking of event medical cover in the UK and is available free of charge to event organisers.

 John Perry, Founder and Paramedic comments: “Having worked as a paramedic for several years, before specialising in event medical cover, I soon realised that the process of finding a trusted supplier and choosing the right level of cover was often time-consuming, stressful and complicated. The various levels of cover required, the minimum legal requirements and the complexities around event logistics often resulted in confusion and the wrong set-up and supplier being chosen. 

“This is why I’ve created The Medical Network, a platform which reinvents the process by taking away the time and hassle of organising these services. Event organisers are able to, at no cost, source quotations from, and arrange bookings with, an exclusive network of the most experienced and professional companies and individuals in the market; all of whom have been personally vetted and approved by myself and my team.”

 To ensure the right level of cover is being quoted for and all legal requirements are met, all quotation requests are checked first by in-house paramedics and experienced event medics. Any quote which doesn’t meet minimum requirements is reverted to the event organisers. Once approved, the system distributes the quotation request to a range of specialist event medical suppliers with a proven track record who then provide accurate proposals. All the planner / booker needs to do is review the information and, in the click of a button, choose their preferred supplier.

 Perry adds: “By removing the hassle from organisers and bookers and putting the checking into the hands of experts, we’re able to quickly identify any issues with the level of cover or meeting legal requirements and bring this to the attention of the organiser or booker. We won’t provide quotations for those looking to save a few pounds by cutting corners – we pride ourselves on our stringent approach as this is what will ensure for the safety of the public and minimise risk to the organiser.”
