We believe in offering our clients the most efficient and professional service from start to finish
Unlike many competing organisations, First Aid Cover Ltd. provides a complete package including thorough event staffing and management plans. All staff are trained to a high standard and highly experienced in what they do. Our staff are not volunteers and do not work in this field "part – time". Our staff are supported by the latest equipment and fully equipped emergency vehicles.
How it works
After we have received your initial phone call or internet enquiry, our team will put together a plan of action in line with best practice and current Health and Safety recommendations. We will always aim to supply a quote on the same day as the initial enquiry, often within an hour. Once we have received your booking, we will address any further details you require advice on to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.
Once booked, our staff will arrive and liaise with your team, working together throughout the event when necessary.
Is it working?
We believe it is! Both new and pre – existing clients come back to us event after event, year after year. Our clients are not let down by "pull – outs" on the event day or a poor quality of staff. First Aid Cover Ltd. has seen a 100% increase in workload with each year of trading and we now cover over two thousand events every year.
The quality of the service our company provides is extremely important to us. Every year we successfully provide cover for some of the largest and most high profile events in the UK
We are more than happy to supply new and existing clients with a number of references we have on file from satisfied clients. Please do not hesitate to ask us if you require client references in relation to our service provision standards.
Initial advice on health and safety regulations
The safety of the general public who attend events and those taking part is the responsibility of the event or venue manager. All events we quote for are graded by a nurse or paramedic experienced in event management and planning.
Fully equipped teams on every event.
Whether we are supplying a nurse for a film shoot or a hundred staff for a mass gathering event, they will come equipped to do the job they are required to do with the latest tools of their trade.
Our staff are the most visible side of the company and as a consequence, we consider it vital that they are selected from the best applicants.

We aim to supply staff who are not only well trained and experienced but understand the way events work and the importance of team work.
