Jim Gardiner and Dawn Greenhalgh, working as MRU Services, are registered Nurses with a wealth of emergency and health care experience; both are trained and experienced in adult and paediatric Advanced Life Support and Trauma management.
MRU Services supplies experienced health care professionals to support TV and Film Production Companies. We only supply qualified health care professionals who are on their relevant professional register, Nurses and Paramedics. We can supply registration numbers / proof of medical indemnity / public liability insurance as required. The primary support is with Registered Nurses in Unit Nurse Role; their remit is to support the cast and crew in a proactive manner to maintain the health of all, with the intent to keep the crew functioning within their role, therefore supporting the smooth running of the production. We also support the artistes in the same way and we have a track record of supporting artistes through injuries keeping them at work and avoiding ‘down time’ through unexpected lack of cast.
We will also work with the production team / AD’s to advise on risk issues to allow the smooth running of the production with minimal risk to those involved. If required we can also advise the Producer / Director re issues relating to ‘medical’ accuracy within the production.
We have worked closely with stunt co-ordinators and animal handlers and are able to meet the needs required to cover stunt activities. Should further cover be required, MRU Services can supply a fully equipped ambulance with appropriate staff, inc. registered Paramedics.
We attend with a selection of medications and disposables to manage a range of minor illness or injury on site, preventing disruption to the schedule whilst maintaining the best level of care for those injured or unwell. We also carry a range of equipment to manage more significant illness or trauma, this includes ECG and Blood Pressure monitoring, pulse oximetry, blood glucose monitoring and tympanic thermometer; defibrillator, oxygen therapy equipment and trauma management equipment, inc. that required for the management of catastrophic haemorrhage and burns.
MRU Services has a wealth of experience supporting the Film / TV industry and we would be happy to meet the needs of your production, working to care for your staff.
