Response-Med’s management team have over 20 years of experience in providing services to the remote exploration and mining companies in the East African and Sub-Saharan regions. Today we operate across the oil, gas, mining and infrastruture development industries. We also serve UN Development Agencies and a range of NGO clients.

QUALITY CARE IS STANDARD

Our promise of access to the top regional medical specialists, excellent paramedics and world-class clinical treatment comes standard. We offer our services at competitive rates, while never compromising on quality.

An African-born team, we believe clients choose to partner with us because of our in-depth local insight and our ability to apply region-specific treatment protocols.

Testimonials

“Diana and her team supported our seismic operations on two separate operations between 2010 and 2014, in different exploration licenses in the Coastal region of Kenya. All field personnel were clinically strong working within the onsite clinics, ambulances and the more remote line camps. The medics were pro-active with regards to Health and Safety training on topics of malaria awareness, first aid, health and safety within the camp and the kitchen facilities as well as lifestyle illnesses and personal hygiene.”
Allan Sayers
Director Polaris Exploration (UK) Ltd

“Response-Med has recently provided an excellent First Aid Training to our members of our Elephant and Bess Project research team based in Sagalla, near Voi in Kenya. We found their training to be very professionally presented. 60% of the course was practical focusing on a number of areas that we had identified as important for our location. I was impressed with Response-Med from the first interaction with their Nairobi Staff team right through to the follow up communication after that course was successfully completed.”
Dr Lucy King
Head of Human-Elephant Co-Existance Program Elephant and Bees Project, Save The Elephants, Nairobi, Kenya

“I worked with Diana Carson and her team for 3 years whilst she was managing the Medical Division for Ardan Support Services. They provided us with a fully equipped Advanced Life Support Clinic, Ambulance Services and a team of medical personnel for the duration of our seismic project. The medical support team, both at head office and in the field were clinically sound and service driven. The day-to-day health and safety reporting together with the management of medical evacuations was particularly strong. All critical patients were treated on a very personal level, as if they were the only one.”
