THE ATLAS TEAM
Caring, enthusiastic, and passionate about my job. I am very grateful for being where I am now and thankful for my family and friends who have helped me to achieve my ambitions. Once I begun working on films, I quickly realised this was my niche. I loved A&E and continued to combine working in both industries for many years. I am very lucky to have worked in Venice, Tenerife and Morocco as well as many other locations up and down the country, from fields and forests to theatres and museums.
In 2018 I co-founded Atlas Medical Services. We were very lucky to be offered Emma and the Nevers from the off and worked with some lovely teams who gave us the opportunity to expand. We have gone on to work on so many productions since! I love having the Atlas team by my side - reliable and friendly nurses, paramedics and Ambulance Technicians. We are a family and our motto is quality rather than quantity!
In my personal time I am mum to three gorgeous children. I enjoy dog walks, swimming, socialising and family days out. I love travelling and exploring new places and cultures.
As Operations Manager for Atlas Medical Services, it’s Nick’s job to plan, implement, and supervise the day-to-day running of the business. With his experience in both medicine and the TV and Film world, he is that ever important link between the production and our medical team.
A paramedic with 26 years front line experience, Nick joined the London Ambulance Service back in 1997 and in 2008 had his first introduction into TV/Film by providing medical cover on the game show ‘Gladiators’ at Shepperton Studios. He hasn’t looked back since.
Nick’s other passions for endurance cycling, pasta, lemon desserts, and coffee means he has the drive and energy to ensure that Atlas Medical provides a 1st class service that is second to none.
Atlas Medical Services is operated and owned by experienced Healthcare Professionals with extensive experience in dealing with all aspects of film production and emergencies that may arise during these productions. Our staff are vastly experienced in dealing with emergencies and incidents which enables us to provide a first class service ensuring quality of care whilst maintaining a proactive and highly professional service. Patients and clients can be assured that Atlas Medical Services will be responsive to all of their requirements no matter how big or small.
At Atlas we believe ourselves to be more than just emergency medics and that the general health and wellbeing of the whole of your crew is just as important. We understand how important it is to have a fully functioning team and to that extent we also have the ability to liaise with various doctors and GP’s who are able to issue private prescriptions which can be collected and delivered to a location ensuring that time away from the workplace is kept to a minimum. We can also organise blood tests on site.
We have a comprehensive range of insurance policies for both our employees protection and for the peace of mind of our patients and clients. We only use qualified staff who are predominantly sourced from the NHS and all staff are enhanced DBS checked before employment. We encourage our staff to be proactive and engaging and as a result we are proud to receive feedback that Atlas medics become more like one of the crew throughout the time we are with a production.
OUR DBS POLICY
At ATLAS, we're proud to say that all of our medics undergo an enhanced DBS with barred list(s) check instead of the industry standard basic DBS check.
This level of DSC involves a check of
the DBS children’s and adults’ barred list for roles which involve looking after
vulnerable children or adults. It’s standard practice for teachers,
carers, and those in the medical profession to be put through
enhanced DBS with barred list checks
A number of our medics are EU passport holders and are able to work across Europe.
