Hey Gang;

I've been offered an opportunity to make a presentation to a mining consortium for the provision of medical personnel to the mines in the area. Problem is, this is unexplored territory for me. Last time I did anything like this was as an employee, 25 years ago.

For those of you who are involved in the industrial medical aspect, how do things work for you? Who provides housing, the mine? Your company? How about transportation? Any special benefits? Perks?

I expect that my proposal is going to involve a basic service at a base price with customization options available, each at an extra cost.

Any advice from someone with experience in this would be a great help.

Sorry I can't help you with any of your questions, but I just wanted to say that you should keep us updated on whether you end up getting a contract and are looking for paramedics! Good luck!

I should mention as well that the mines are remote and the shift would be something along the lines of 7 on 24 hour call 7 off in the middle of nowhere. Bright side is that the high end of my proposal includes a Helicopter. :)

You need to talk to Squint.

Last time I provided private ALS coverage I was making $625/day based on a 12 hour day. 24 hour a day coverage would obviously require a commiserate increase in compensation.

Are you looking at an expanded scope situation? IE suturing, antibiotics etc. with telemedicine available.

Unfortunately our college won't allow an increase in scope like this, Fortunately they are looking at an overall scope review to match the NOCPs closer. I'll give Wilf a call.
