Servicing of cruise ships
We offer an opportunity to provide qualified medical services for your clients both onboard of a cruise ship and in hospitals.
What is a cruise ship servicing?
The main task of any cruise company is ensuring comfort and safety for their passengers. Therefore, in accordance with the requirements of international maritime passenger transportation law, each cruise ship must have a qualified onboard physician and a medical center equipped with everything needed for provision of medical first aid and treatment of minor health conditions.
However, it should be noted that medical facilities available at a medical center onboard of a cruise ship are quite modest as compared to an onshore hospital, and onboard physicians are typically general practice doctors. As a result, urgent medical assistance of a subspecialist doctor (for example, to deal with toothache) or in-patient medical care in an onshore hospital may be required. Medfron Assistance has all the capability to provide qualified medical assistance both onboard of a cruise ship and in hospitals. The option of an emergency evacuation of a passenger by a helicopter to an onshore hospital is also available.
