Important Announcement

Expedition & Wilderness Medicine started a world movement for medics working in remote and austere locations. We remain at the forefront in all we do and that's why we are changing our name to 'World Extreme Medicine'. It reflects a change in how we as a worldwide community of medics respond to emergencies and an ever widening range of opportunities for adventurous medics... Where man goes, medicine must follow.

At World Extreme Medicine we are aware that TV projects are getting more adventurous and travelling to more remote environments. In these circumstances it is vitally important to have a qualified doctor or medical professional on site should the unexpected happen. Many locations do not have first world medical facilities and an WEM remote medic equipped with the latest mobile medical kit and satellite communication can provide the peace of mind to allow you to focus on the production of your project. 

“We contracted a large medical team made up of doctors, paramedics and nurses through World Extreme Medicine Limited for our 6 month remote location shoot in Fiji and we couldn't be happier. The team from the top down were extremely professional and easy to deal with at all levels of the operation. Ultimately our number one concern is the health and safety of our cast and crew and at all times it felt we were in extremely capable hands. From a logistics and production standpoint we also really appreciate the professionalism and “can do” attitude these guys bring to the table. They are a real pleasure to work with and I hope to continue our relationship with WEM for many years to come.” Jesse Jensen – Co-Executive Producer - US ‪Survivor

We can provide full medical cover for production teams and celebrities on your television or photographic project worldwide. We have an impressive portfolio of experienced medical professionals on our books, many of whom have media experience both on and off camera. Using WEM to provide your medical cover resolves some of the most important logistical and safety considerations of foreign travel in remote environments.   Through our ties with Across the Divide Expeditions we are also able to assist in the provision of outdoor specialists and logistical support in the world's most remote locations.

"Behind every challenge and adventure is a logistics team that work tirelessly behind the scenes. World Extreme Medicine provide the support and logistics that ensured a safe and successful adventure. They organised the event in record time without compromising safety or quality.

Quite simply, we couldn't have done it without them".
