MedAire launches new London Assistance Centre for yachts

25 September 2023, London, MedAire has today announced the expansion of its dedicated yachting medical and security assistance service to Chiswick, London.

Located within the London International SOS Assistance Centre, the new team will meet increased demand, especially during the busy peak periods of the Mediterranean and Caribbean yachting seasons.

The new Assistance Centre will work alongside MedAire’s U.S. based Assistance Centre in Phoenix, in a follow-the-sun model, continuing to provide 24/7/365 support to yachts.

This expansion follows the recent launch of MedAire’s Business and General Aviation Assistance Centre in London and will provide a seamless service for the many clients that rely on MedAire for health and security coverage across their aviation and maritime assets.

"MedAire has provided the highest level of medical and security assistance to the yachting industry for over 35 years," said Steven Bates, MedAire General Manager. "We chose to expand to London not only because the service delivery infrastructure is already well established, with access to numerous highly trained individuals, but London is of course closer to the areas in which our clients operate – allowing us to better leverage local capabilities and facilitate more knowledge-sharing between the International SOS and MedAire teams”.

Hannah Li Head of Medical and Security Assistance Services, London at International SOS said that "We’re proud that London was chosen as a centre of excellence to look after yachting cases. Clients can of course expect the same high levels of service and our team responsible for managing luxury yacht cases have undergone additional training to provide enhanced support to the specialised needs of those on superyachts"
