CARING FOR SEAFARERS AND HELPING SHIP OWNERS AVOID DIVERSIONS OR EVACUATIONS
Our maritime services are provided by our specialist subsidiary company, Future Care, which has been providing support to seafarers for over 25 years.
We provide telemedical assistance specific to the physical and emotional needs of mariners. When contacting Future Care, part of the International SOS Group of Companies, our medical team will assist the ship’s captain or medical officer to correctly diagnose and treat the problem. This can be miles away from shore and 69% of cases are solved on board.
When mariners require further treatment, Future Care expertly manages and coordinates the case. Wherever possible, we draw on the regularly vetted and approved medical provider network of International SOS, caring for the crew from onset, right through to aftercare.
