Medical Repatriation and Evacuation
Aeromedical repatriation is a specialised service which MERT International can provide you with.
We organise commercial repatriations and Air Ambulance flights depending on the condition and requirements of the patient. Aeromedical repatriation is a multi-disciplinary process involving 24/7 operations staff, highly trained and experienced medical teams, skilled and caring flight escorts and professional linguists who communicate directly with the doctors overseas and translate any medical reports obtained.
MERT International can take care of all aspects of Aeromedical repatriation. We arrange the road ambulances overseas, arrange the flights on the commercial airline, ensure that medical clearance is obtained and assign the appropriate medical escort to help repatriate the patient safely. MERT International will also arrange the road ambulance once back in the UK, the hospital admission (if required) and an appointment with the patient’s own doctor.
We have extensive expertise in the field of Aeromedical repatriation and we can help make the process efficient and cost-effective whilst also making the experience less stressful for the patient and family. We ensure that the patient’s care and requirements are given paramount importance.
MERT International specialises in worldwide medical repatriations, advising when and how patients can be brought home safely.
We second the services from a variety of backgrounds including paramedics, intensive care paramedics, nurses and doctors. All of our consultants hold recognised qualifications in emergency pre-hospital care. They are all DBS checked, fully insured and will be identifiable by their MERT International UK identity card.
