QML @ LWE

Confirmed today, we again have been appointed sole medical provider for LWE at Summer In The City.

 

Having transformed the Grade 1 listed Tobacco Dock into the ultimate space for a daytime party, LWE will kick off an exclusive event’s partnership with the venue in August. With pre-release tickets for ‘Summer In The City’ selling out super quick, we can now reveal the first parts of the lineup.

 

LWE will host the main room and have handpicked a selection of the hottest names in house and techno – a blistering blend of classic summer sounds. This time, down in the basement, they have called on Damian Lazarus to play host and he’s assembled an almighty array of his Crosstown Rebels. More to be announced in the coming weeks…

Covering the Head of the River Race

This week saw QML assist in providing medical cover for the Head of the River Race on the Thames. It was a great sunny day until the weather changed with over 350 boats and 1500 students taking part. We were, for obvious reasons, supporting and cheering on St. Paul’s School.

 

The Head of the River Race (HORR) is a processional rowing race held annually on the River Thames in London, England, on the 4.25 mile (6.8km) Championship Course from Mortlake to Putney. The race was founded in 1925 by Steve Fairbairn – an influential rower and rowing coach at the time.

Quad Medical Goes Extreme

We are pleased to confirm this summer we will be working with and providing medical cover for www.extreme-rally.co.uk

 

A brand new and exclusive rally stage in Aldershot, Hampshire at Rushmoor Arena. Extreme Rally’s stage houses fast and flowing tarmac corners, with off camber corners and fast straights. An overall challenging terrain for any driver, challenging your every move and reflects the conditions professional rally drivers face in the current Championships. Located close to London it's a great new addition for the South.

Quad Medical to provide cover at Brownlee Triathlon

We are pleased to confirm this summer we will be working with and providing medical cover for the Brownlee Triathlon.

 

Brownlee Tri South will take place on Sunday 15th June 2014 and will be hosted at the iconic National Trust property, Petworth House and Park in West Sussex. Competitors will swim, bike and run within the idyllic South Downs countryside.

 

The Venue will host both sprint and super sprint triathlon distances for individuals, as well as having a youth and junior super sprint challenge, and also a sprint relay for teams. Whether you are a seasoned triathlete or taking on your first ever race, there really will be something for everyone. In addition, there will be plenty for spectators and supporters to enjoy.

 

Olympic Champion, Alistair Brownlee said ‘our first Brownlee Tri up north last year was amazing, so we are delighted to be able to bring our event to the south in 2014. Petworth House and Park is a stunning venue, and perfect for people of all ages to get involved and swim, bike and run!”

Quad Medical’s Caroline is Associate of Kings College

Quad Medical Limited would like to say congratulations to our very own Caroline Medcraft. Having attended a course of lectures in Theology, Caroline passed the necessary examinations and fulfilled the other requirements, and has been elected as an Associate of King’s College by the Council. Well Done Caroline!

A Great Read

Over the past few weeks, two of Quad Medical’s senior managers had a medical student shadow them for her course. It was not written whilst they were working for Quad Medical, but it is a very interesting read. It demonstrates the skills our staff bring to the QML team and our organisation (This has not been edited by us & some terminology my be incorrect)… Check it out by clicking on the image...

Event Industry News

The Quad Medical interview is coming soon. Here is a snippet…

 

Staying aware of the latest drug trends is a crucial part of managing a successful medical operation at events, according to one expert. Paul Saddington of Quad Medical told the Virtual Festival that the increasing number of legal highs means medical teams need to stay acutely aware of what they are and the effects they have on those taking them.

 

“As well as outdoor events, we regularly work at warehouse dance events”, said Paul. “As a result, we’re able to keep a watchful eye on any trends developing within certain musical cultures. Legal highs and new drugs are developing at a frightening pace, and it is inevitable that some of these substances will find their way into events. With most organisers sending clear zero-tolerance messages in advance of events, customers are pre-loading before they enter, which can make the task of dealing with any medical issues more complicated." ... To Be Continued.

Event Success

We are pleased to announce as a direct result of EPS14, finishing only 2 ago we can confirm our attendance at the following events:

 

Bloomsbury Business Fair, Lambs Conduit Festival, EMC3 Surrey, Tobacco Dock, PAWRS, Miss England. Also, what will be our biggest 2 events so far… Wembley!

 

It’s starting to look like a good year with a fair bit of travelling around the UK with new clients, planning already underway for 2-3 overseas trips and the recruitment of medics with specialist skills to help assist with a special request from a new client. We will be maintaining our fleet and equipment but may have to extend in some areas to help complete our tasks. We shall keep you posted.

Quad Medical In The Media… Again

Event Industry News launches it's brand new magazine this week. The new publication is called The Virtual Festival Magazine.

Welcoming In The New Year!

It’s over and welcome to 2014, what a very long 48 hours and a very big THANK YOU to all that took part at each of the 15 events taking place over London.

 

Some big and some small, but each team member played just as an important role.

 

We’ve already had great feedback with 6 large scale events already confirmed partly due to yesterday’s excellent performance.

 

Special thanks to the Northern branch that stepped up due to last minute alterations, staff that stayed on when things started to over run & the ones that have already received thank you emails.

 

Enjoy your rest and thanks once again.

Now in their eighth year, the 2014 awards will embrace the theme of mighty oaks growing from small acorns and once again celebrate the exhibition industry’s greatest shows, best venues and leading individuals.

QM Appointed Sole Medical Provider

Quad Medical Limited has officially been appointed sole medical supplier for the Event Production Show & The Event Production Awards 2014. The Show has been the annual meeting place for everyone involved in delivering fantastic events for more than 20 years. Over 200 leading suppliers (including Quad Medical Limited) will be showcasing the most innovative event products and services with more than 4000 of the industry’s key organisers attending to meet new suppliers, network with colleagues, discover new technologies and gather information at the workshops and seminars. 

 

The Awards will return at the 2014 Event Production Show and with new categories, judges and venue, and is set to be the best yet! Taking place on the evening of Tuesday 11th February 2014, the third Awards will unite over 600 professionals from across the UK’s events industry to recognise and celebrate the top suppliers, manufacturers, teams and individuals from the past year. 18 awards will be presented on the night with Best Event under 15,000 people, Best Event over 15,000 people, Best Production Manager/Team, Best Plant, Best Infrastructure & Best Sound categories new for 2014.

Quad Medical @ The o2

QML has been invited to provide medical cover at one of London's most famous and biggest venues this weekend. Hopefully we will be a permanent fixture here.

London Warehouse Events and The O2 have revealed details of a new club called Building Six. According to a press release, the 3000-capacity venue in Greenwich's Millennium Dome will host "a variety of top end club nights," kicking off on October 12th with DJ Fresh, Shy FX, DJ EZ, Breakage and Dismantle. To date the venue has proved to be something of a poisoned chalice. First, the fabric-owned venue matter shut down in 2010, while its successor, Proud2, failed to get off the ground. Now the club is run in-house by The O2, who describes it as a "blank canvas event space." They've brought in LWE to help curate events.

LWE director Will Harold said: "This is a great thing for London’s club scene right now. Promoters have been struggling to find the spaces they need to accommodate the level of talent that is out there."

New Arrivals!

We'll take advantage of the bad weather today to stock our new event bags (for events that do not require an A&E vehicle), each will contain first aid packs, primary response equipment, burns pack, resuscitation adjuncts, oxygen, AED's and observation kits.

Hopefully our 'user friendly' paramedic drug packs will arrive Monday (14th October), but we’ll keep you posted.

Quad Medical Overseas

A small group of QML's management team have been lucky enough to assist with medical provisions overseas over the last few weeks at two large festivals in Europe. 

 

With between 20-30,000 party goers at each festival, between 10-20 different stage areas, locations requiring medical cover and working with another UK ambulance service and alongside foreign healthcare professionals and ambulance service, without the backup we are used to, it's been tough going with the heat, dust and foreign protocols, however its been an amazing learning curve and great experience for QML and something we can build on. 

Quad Medical @ the Olympic Stadium

Quad Medical was privileged to be asked to assist with medical cover at the Olympic Stadium for the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games 2013.


Small teams were assembled across the 3 day event to support St Johns Ambulance in providing medical cover to over 40,000 spectators on what turned out to be a great summer weekend with a fantastic atmosphere.


You can view photos of this momentous occasion on our gallery page or via our Facebook link on the home page.
