Rescue Teams Gain a Full Time Lead Medic

To ensure that PMP continues to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations we have recently appointed Jamie Scholes as our full time lead medic.

Confined Space Rescue continues to grow as a key segment within the PMP portfolio, as a service for our own engineering teams, but also providing rescue teams for our clients.

The combination of rope access, engineering and confined space work & rescue expertise, provides a single sourced solution; reducing both the interface a client has to manage and the risks associated with any project.

Our current teams have a good knowledge of emergency first aid and we have access to mountain rescue and paramedic trained staff, as part of our current offering. However, the investment of two new dedicated rescue vans, with welfare facilities and stretcher carrying capability, along with a fully trained full time lead medic give testament to PMP’s commitment to providing the best possible service to our clients and our own staff.

Jamie was previously a Class 1 medical technician in the British Armed Forces Parachute Regiment, and more recently has experience both on and offshore in providing medical cover for medical emergencies, advanced cardiac life support and trauma. Jamie has a raft of medical qualifications, as well as practical work related experience.

Additionally, Jamie holds teaching qualifications, both military and civilian, that will enable him to provide in house training sessions and refresher courses for our own staff, to ensure that they are kept up to date with the latest first aid information.

Jamie joins PMP’s well established Rescue Teams with responsibility for ensuring that each rescue team is correctly kitted out and ready to respond to ensure that the best possible outcome occurs in the event of our onsite rescue teams needing to get involved with a project.
