I have used Adventure Medical Consulting on a few occasions, mainly their tele-medicine "Top-Cover" service. I have used this on several overland drives and most recently on our World Record Setting Row. We set ourselves the challenge of rowing from Mainland Europe to Mainland S.America without a support boat or back up. Adventure Medical Consulting was the only support we had and were there at the push of a button on our emergency sat phone. Our crossing took us around 50 days to complete and Doc Ross helped us with infections, suturing, mental health advice and general medical advice. The Tele-medicine service we used was tailored specifically to our expedition and I would certainly use them again. A great service and always available when you need them.

"I took part and won the 2011 ITV series of 71 Degrees North. It was filmed well withing the arctic circle in some of the most inhospitable conditions on the planet. Due to the extreme physical nature of the show, injuries and illness were common."
"Dr Ross Anderson was present throughout the duration of the expedition over a month in total. He was able to expertly advise on safety and prevention, as well as treating anything we presented him! I personally suffered amongst others , cold induced asthma by far the worst I've ever had, frost damage to toes, and deep cuts requiring sutures and dressing, all of which were treated by Dr Ross "in the field" enabling me to carry on and ultimately win the show."
"Dr Ross' first hand experience of such extreme conditions were invaluable - enabling him to work to the best of his ability and knowledge in such an unforgiving environment."

"I undertook a solo expedition to New Guinea in 2010, with the aim of climbing Australasia's 3 highest peaks. The mountain ranges I planned to visit were remote; several days trek from the nearest airstrips. Ross’s one-to-one Advanced First Aid course designed a bespoke, intensive Wilderness Medical Intervention course for me, which gave me the confidence to deal with any medical emergency. His teaching was clear and constructive and I was grateful to tap into his extensive pool of expedition medical expertise. He made sure that I left the UK with the necessary medical supplies and the skills to use them."
