The Northbank Area Medics

During the festive season, the BID  funded a team of specialised medics based at Charing Cross Station. The medics worked alongside station staff, the BID Ambassadors and security teams to support people who became unwell or vulnerable after dark. A total of 6 medics provided care Monday – Saturday, from 5.30pm – 1.30am, for three weeks until New Year’s Eve. 52 individuals received medical care and first aid to treat a wide range of physical and mental issues. The project is part of the BID’s aim to provide a safe nighttime experience and help people to get home safely and have fun on nights out, and is set to return next year.
