Question: Why does professional medical support cost more than just first aid?
Answer: Basically it takes considerable time, effort and funding to provide medical equipment and quality teams, and dependable operating systems as part of our services delivery.
Compliance costs quite a lot as well.
Compliance means a variety of things have been met that makes us reputable; Medical Standards, Appropriate medical equipment, Staff Training and Continuing Education, Insurances, Licencing, Liaison with Government Emergency Agencies, Health Department requirements, Pre-Event Planning and Risk Management, just to name a few.
If your looking around for a quote for services, and a number of providers are far far cheaper, if they say straight away they'll do the job, or don't even gather detailed event information for a risk assessment...you really need to ask yourself ..why are they so cheap?
Don't put yourself, your organisation or club at risk by adopting cheap services just so you can 'tick - a - box'. It generally won't end well.
