Managing Director - Leo Burdock
I am an IHCD Ambulance Technician with 7 years’ experience of providing medical support on the NHS frontline emergency service, schools sporting fixtures and a wide range of events. On leaving school I knew a routine desk job was not for me. Continuing my education, I studied Public Uniformed Services, where a talk from a visiting paramedic inspired me to choose a career within healthcare. Whilst staring out in my career I quickly discovered that no day was ever the same. I also enjoyed providing a highly regarded service to the public.
Having competed in a range of sports, including athletics and judo, I have first-hand experience of injuries and how important it is to have qualified medical staff on hand to treat appropriately and, where possible, avoid attending A&E departments.
About Our Company
Out of Hours Medics Ltd was set up in 2013, initially providing an organ transportation service. I realised that the staff delivering this service were wanting to utilise their medical qualifications and get more involved with patient care so I extended the range of services to include medical support. Recently this has expanded to gaining contracts with private schools in Surrey and Kent for the provision of medical support for their sporting calendar.
During 2017, my customer group extended to organisers of mass obstacle and outward-bound challenges, for which my team of doctors, nurses and ambulance staff, all with NHS trauma and primary care experience, have provided high quality first response medical care.
The company has recently relocated to an office suite within Black Hanger Studios, near Alton in Hampshire, with access to training rooms and an aeroplane for scenario training. Our training centre is approved by Qualsafe Awards, an Awarding Organisation recognised by Ofqual to offer regulated qualifications.
Being located within the studio offices has opened new avenues, with the opportunity to provide medical support to the resident and visiting film and TV production teams.
Out of Hours Medics Ltd operates alongside the sister company Out of Hours Security Ltd under the name of Out of Hours Support Group. The medical and security teams can work independently or combined to provide the requirements of our many clients. Details of Out of Hours Security Ltd can be found at www.ohsecurity.co.uk
