Hi I have just qualified as an offshore medic having previously worked as a nurse since 1991, I will be working on offshore oil installations or support ships, and am wondering if anyone else out there has any experience of this type of work. I will be working on my own, but with medical backup onshore. I will be dealing with everything from athletes foot to major trauma, for up 130 people. Any advice or suggestions from those of you who work remotely would be appreciated.
