MedAire has expanded its yachting medical and security assistance service to Chiswick, London.
This new team will be situated within the London International SOS Assistance Centre and will meet increased demand, especially during the Mediterranean and Caribbean yachting seasons.
With a follow-the-sun model, the new Assistance Centre will work alongside MedAire’s Phoenix-based Assistance Centre and continue to support yachts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Having recently launched its Business and General Aviation Assistance Centre in London, MedAire’s expansion will provide seamless service to the many clients that rely on MedAire for their aviation and maritime health and security coverage.
“MedAire has provided the highest level of medical and security assistance to the yachting industry for over 35 years,” said Steven Bates, MedAire General Manager. “We chose to expand to London not only because the service delivery infrastructure is already well established, with access to numerous highly trained individuals, but London is of course closer to the areas in which our clients operate – allowing us to better leverage local capabilities and facilitate more knowledge-sharing between the International SOS and MedAire teams”.
Hannah Li Head of Medical and Security Assistance Services, London at International SOS said that:
“We’re proud that London was chosen as a centre of excellence to look after yachting cases. Clients can of course expect the same high levels of service and our team responsible for managing luxury yacht cases have undergone additional training to provide enhanced support to the specialised needs of those on superyachts”
