TOPSIDE / DUTY DOCTOR SUPPORT

Our team of medical professionals have extensive experience of the requirements of the provision of adequate first aid and basic health care for all personnel, including visitors, who are injured or become ill while on offshore locations.

Our topside service is provided by our partner company Charles Taylor Assistance.  Our team of medical professionals have extensive experience of the requirements of the provision of adequate first aid and basic health care for all personnel, including visitors, who are injured or become ill while on offshore locations.  We understand the remoteness, the role of the offshore medic/offshore first aiders and how getting the level of care required needs to be managed either on-board or managing the transit back to a suitable medical reception facility.

We have the first-hand knowledge of the varying complexities our clients face across the sector from coordinating a specialist fleet of subsea vessels, operating numerous offshore assets or managing global drill rigs.  Having a relationship with a flexible and responsive medical provider is critical to ensuring smooth running of day-to-day operations.  Our specialised team can provide a tailored service without compromising compliance, safety and quality to ensure the best level of care for your employees.

Our team of A&E consultants, GPs and remote medicine emergency specialist physicians achieve this via the dedicated in-house team based in the UK.  With a strong focus on prevention, we can support your business providing informed, appropriate, quality medical support focussed on providing appropriate treatment pathways assisting you in reducing the need for unnecessary disembarkations.
