Red Square Medical and MedAire announce partnership to support onboard training expansion

LONDON, 4th April 2024 As part of a broader strategy to expand and grow their medical training offering, MedAire, the leading provider of global health, security and medical assistance onboard superyachts, has appointed Red Square Medical, specialists in providing medical training for seafarers, as their training partner. From April 2024, Red Square Medical will be phasing in the coordination and management of MedAire’s yacht medical training.

For MedAire clients, the partnership will provide access to an increased pool of specialist maritime medical instructors, who are trained to the same high standard as MedAire instructors. There will also be improved availability for clients in busy periods, with a dedicated team responsible for coordinating training logistics.

Emma Deal, Director of Account Management, Luxury Yachts at MedAire said “To support the growth of our global onboard medical training programme, we were looking for a company with a similar philosophy to MedAire. We had been following Red Square Medical for some time and we were drawn to their engaging, educational approach and their passion for maritime medical training. Even more importantly, their understanding of the demands and competing priorities of our industry, and ability to find solutions to meet changing needs was evident.

“This partnership has been six months in the making and will be implemented through a phased approach, to make the transition seamless for clients. We look forward to working with Red Square Medical expanding our pool of world-class instructors and combining our expertise to provide bespoke solutions for our clients.”

Liz Baugh, Lead Medical Consultant at Red Square Medical said “We are delighted to have been chosen by MedAire to develop this exciting part of the business with them. Red Square Medical already works in the superyacht and expedition vessel arena, so we see this relationship as a natural progression of our own business.

“Our in-depth understanding of the demands of the maritime environment and of this sector overall, means that Red Square Medical is ideally positioned to take this vital part of MedAire’s offering further. We are very excited to be implementing this project and working with MedAire instructors and clients to coordinate and deliver their world class onboard medical training. We put a lot of effort into selecting the right instructors to provide maritime medical training and our aim is to support and develop the team with training and placement opportunities, enabling them to deliver the perfect experience for each client.”

The project will be introduced in a phased approach, which is expected to be complete in September 2024.
