Hi Notlocal, yes, i am on Offshore Medic. Jobs are tough to come by at the moment, especially without offshore experience. Its the usual catch 22, you can only get work if you experience, you can only get experience by getting the work. Your best bet is to look for work with an agency...
Abermed as above, Offshore Medics or Capita.....or if you're desperate, Frontier Medical, but theyre notorious for poor pay rates. Offshore Medics are good at getting you a first job offshore, but you have to be available to head off within a couple of hours usually.
Im an RGN, and most of the guys i know are either RGN or ex Army/RAF/Navy CMT's. Paramedics werent allowed for a long time, but i believe that a training school in Plymouth now trains them, as do Capita i think.
The majority of the work is verrrry tedious, colds and coughs, headaches etc. and you often get lumped with various admin duties - effectively anything that no one else wants you get stuck with! In 4 years i have medevaced only 3 guys - 2 serious hand injuries and 1 Malaria (i work in Africa). Having said that i have known of at least 4 deaths caused by trauma (all in Africa) in the same oilfields where i have been working...never on my rig thank the Lord.
