Not all Medics were created equal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Did you know, that there are different levels of Medics in South Africa and that the vast majority of them are prohibited by law to practice medicine unless they are under direct supervision?
  • Did you know that it is illegal for any Medic to work for gain in any environment unless they are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA)?
  • Did you know that there are only approximately 500 registered Paramedics in South Africa and of this number approximately 40 practice in Cape Town?
  • Did you know that you are probably being overcharged for a Medic who is probably under qualified, under equipped and overrated?

What is Advanced Life Support?

The ability to not only diagnose any lethal out-of-hospital condition, but also to be able to give the appropriate medication is known as Advanced Life Support. Only Paramedics are trained to perform Life Support in the
pre-hospital setting.

How important is equipment?

A camera operator without a camera is about as useful on set as a Medic without equipment. It is one thing to be able to be able to diagnose an injury or illness, but not having the right equipment means not being able to do anything about the diagnosis.

How important is reliability?

Mobile Medics guarantee that our Medics will always be punctual and that the Medics will have the appropriate (not necessarily the minimum) equipment.
We endeavor to provide you with Professional Emergency Care Personnel, appropriately qualified for your specific requirements at an affordable rate.

How do we equip our Medics?

All staff are equipped with:

  • An emergency trauma bag
  • An extremely comprehensive first aid bag
  • Oxygen
  • Spinal immobilisation equipment
  • Specialised water and aerial rescue stretchers when required
  • Defibrillator / ECG monitors when required.

All of this equipment is owned by Mobile Medics and is not subject to availability. Mobile Medics will carefully scrutinise the type of standby and provide the appropriate equipment and personnel. Our intention is to provide a service that delivers value for money.

Mobile Medics is owned and managed by Alan Tucker and Craig Northmore, who have been involved in the medical industry collectively for over 20 years. They are available 24-hours a day and will assist in managing any medical problems that arise on a standby. This includes advice on controlling the 'diarrhea' epidemic that occurs, the dentist that is urgently required at
2-o-clock in the morning etc…
