Cross Country Medical (CCM) UK Limited was founded by actively serving front-line medical professionals and was established with a view to exceed the standards of event and activity medical cover. We specialise in the provision of 4x4 and 6x6 medical services and provide cover for high-risk activities and sites. Cross Country Medical's training school provides a range of accredited qualifications and training courses.
We provide our services nationwide across the United Kingdom. Our registered office and central base of operations is located in Lingfield, within the rolling Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Part of our mission is to reduce the impact on NHS resources and reduce response times by providing fully equipped and highly experienced medics on location in areas where there are expected potential risks of injury or illness occurring. It is our aim to preserve life in rural or remote locations where a front-line ambulance or higher level of care may not be immediately available or accessible. As such, we also provide a range of emergency support services to the NHS and private care industry.
We offer a bespoke service and work with our clients to deliver the best level of medical cover to suit their requirements. Our 4x4 ambulances are able to transport patients, urgent medical equipment, and medical crews over rough terrain, in all weathers, and in rural or remote locations.
All of our medical staff are highly qualified, extensively vetted professionals and our medical staffing resource is multi-disciplinary including:
Emergency First Responders (EFR) & First Person on Scene (FPOS)
Emergency Care Assistants (ECA) & Emergency Care Support Workers (ECSW)
Associate Ambulance Practitioners (AAP)
