A corporate executive was on a business trip from the UK to the US. While away he suffered a major heart attack and needed emergency medical treatment. He was admitted to hospital for an urgent assessment and treatment. After one week, we repatriated him back to the UK via air ambulance. We also covered the costs for the client’s colleagues to fly out to complete the project.
A major event in the British equestrian calendar was scheduled to be held in the summer.
