Press Release   •   Oct 18, 2010 11:29 BST

Integrated Subsea Services (ISS), independent supplier of subsea services to the international oil and gas industry, has appointed CEGA as its worldwide emergency medical assistance provider.

ISS, which provides the full suite of diving, ROV and survey services to global oil and gas operators and main contractors, will benefit from the 24 hour availability of CEGA’s assistance operation. This incorporates a worldwide network of quality assured medical facilities and global evacuation capabilities, together with in house medical expertise, multi lingual assistance co-ordinators and cost containment specialists.

With staff and contractors operating all over the world, ISS will also draw on CEGA’s expertise in location-specific pre deployment advice; offered as part of its integrated global risk service.

"Initially we used CEGA on a one off basis due to a medical evacuation we had in South East Asia, but, due to the quality of service and care and attention to the patient and his family, we decided to appoint CEGA as our medical assistance provider," said  Mike Stephen, ISS HR Manager (Offshore Services).

“As the preferred assistance provider to many of the leading UK corporate insurers, including ACE, Chubb and Canopius, CEGA already supports many companies within the oil & gas sector via their business travel policies. However, we are delighted to be working with ISS on a direct basis.” says CEGA’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Rob Upton.
