Our pre-hospital team consists of hundreds of enthusiastic and professional volunteers who are a credit to our organisation, regularly getting plaudits from the patients we treat.
As part of the pre-hospital team, you can be deployed in a range of environments at some of the largest festivals in the UK. You can often be the first clinical team to get to the patient, so being level-headed and able to make decisions in some unique situations is essential.
Some of the roles in the pre-hospital team are;
Clinical Support Paramedic
Off-Site Transfer Team
Cycle Response Team
There also may be opportunities in our in-house training and leadership teams.

Frequently asked questions
What qualifications do I need?
I don't hold the required qualifications can I still apply?
What shifts do I have to do at events
We require a minimum of 2 shifts (normally 8-10hrs) at an event in order to get a place on the team. Occasionally we may require a number of 'on call' volunteers in case of a major incident, you may be asked to be on-call which means carry on and enjoy the festival but please don't drink alcohol during the on-call period.
So do I get to watch the bands at events?
Absolutely! At any events we cover we want you to have fun. As long as you attend your shifts and respect the 'on-call' guidelines then the rest of the time is yours to enjoy. Our team organise get togethers, crew bar meets, joining in, local Park Runs and even swimming in the Thames! At larger events we have our own camp sites, showers, toilets, bar and food. For each shift you do you will get meal vouchers as we don't want you going hungry.
Can I choose what I do at an event
In the first year you will be assigned to the most appropriate team given your grade and experience. After this you can apply to join the more specialised teams.
