FMS is a ‘not for profit‘ registered charity staffed by volunteers, delivering professional medical services at events throughout the country.
Since our inception at the Glastonbury Festival in 1979, FMS has grown to be one of the UK’s most respected event medical providers delivering high-quality care at many of the country’s most prestigious events.
Our services are delivered by teams selected from 1,500 volunteer medical professionals and support staff who provide a high level of capability on-site, thus reducing the need for onward referrals to local NHS facilities.
FMS works in partnership with Ambulance Services and District General Hospitals, to ensure local NHS services are not overwhelmed during events.
Our clinical volunteers are recruited from all area within the NHS and all our experienced staff are fully accredited with patient-facing staff completing an enhanced DBS check.
