Event Health Services

As the Northern Territory’s leading provider in emergency medical response and preparedness, St John NT provides critical support in the planning and implementation of events across the Territory. No matter the size, we are able to assess the situation, and determine the most appropriate level of clinical coverage.

St John NT Event Health Services will provide a tailored medical plan for your event based on our experience of working and living in the Territory.

We draw on our extensive team of medical professionals including first responders, paramedics, nurses and doctors to ensure that the safety of your participants are in the best hands possible.

Please note we require a minimum 6 weeks’ notice for coverage consideration.

Each event is assessed in accordance with the level of its potential risk. We will provide a quote for our service in advance, the quote must be approved before we confirm the booking.
