Knight Medical    

Knight Medical was founded in 2002 by ex-Royal Navy Medic Michael Knight, initially to undertake Locum Offshore Medic contracts within the oil and gas industry.

Over the past four years the company has expanded and developed exciting new services, products and mobile training courses for those involved in remote or hostile working environments.

In this period the company has provided training and services worldwide to the following companies and organisations:

- Cairn Energy (India)
- ExxonMobil
- Schlumberger
- BP
- QinetiQ
- British Gas
- First Action
- Pilgrims Specialist Services
- BBC World Service (Iraq)
- Shell Nigeria
- Frontier Medical
- Capita Health Solutions

Our aim is to provide quality, cost-effective medical services and training to those clients who require a more specialised approach to their operational needs.

Why pay excessive travel, hotel and food costs for your staff to attend courses?

Our training is conducted anywhere in the world using our Mobile First Aid Training Units. All training courses are designed to be fully mobile, providing greater flexibility for clients and students.

Knight Medical maintains a large database of suitably qualified and experienced medics and instructors employed on an ad-hoc basis.

We only use instructors who have recent experience of operating in Iraq, and all staff that work with our company possess a strong pre-hospital care background coupled with experience of conflict injury.
