Hours to live

Although she was unable to claim on her insurance policy immediately, we investigated the fastest and most cost-effective flights, and advised on luggage to optimise transfers.

Flight restrictions no barrier to evacuation

Our mining client had an employee working in Sierra Leone who suffered a serious accident at work. We liaised closely with the onsite paramedic and our client’s CEO to evacuate the patient to nearby Freetown. Unfortunately, further surgery was needed and this could only be undertaken at a hospital in Johannesburg – some 6,500 miles away. Further surgery was arranged in a Johannesburg hospital, but serious airspace restrictions made getting him there difficult. Intana Global planned a complex route to South Africa, including commercial flights via the UK. We also arranged all guarantees and follow up treatment for more than 12 months.

Using our network to resolve a dilemma

A young traveller in Chile faced a major dilemma after admission to hospital with dehydration. Following treatment, the Santiago hospital refused to accept written confirmation of insurance to cover medical bills. The hospital withheld the patient’s passport, preventing further travel plans. Intana Global used close links with Lloyds of London underwriters to contact a local agent. The agent immediately provided cash to cover the bills, and the traveller was discharged without delay.

Doing the right thing – whatever the circumstances

When one of Intana Global’s customers was found unconscious and alone in Thailand, it was clear that his condition was life threatening and he needed to be to be evacuated to Bangkok for treatment. Key decisions such as these need consent however he was in no position to provide it. Although we were advised he would not survive, we followed our core ethos in providing the best possible medical treatment – even if the patient is unaware of the efforts we are making. We therefore managed his repatriation to the UK, where he was able to die in the most appropriate and caring environment.
