Growth Award entrant – MW Medics

An independent ambulance, event medical and training service has grown from a turnover of £2,000 in 2017 to sales exceeding £120,000 last year.

MW Medics Ltd was set up by Stuart and Kieron Morgan-Williams shortly after their wedding in 2017.

The couple began with just one medical response bag between them and offered medical cover for small events in villages near Albrighton. They now have three ambulances and more than 30 staff.

Stuart explained: “I started my career as a lifeguard and became a Community First Responder for West Midlands Ambulance Service before furthering my knowledge by attending many other courses. In 2021 I joined Staffordshire University, studying Mental Health Nursing.

“Kieron became a domiciliary carer when he left school before meeting me and upskilled to be a pre-hospital responder. “
Stuart and Kieron invested in their fledgling  business and were able to purchase more equipment to provide an extended first aid service and widened their patch into Telford.

In 2019 they became qualified teachers and were able to provide first aid training and other courses to members of the public.

During the pandemic their events work became scarce so Stuart and Kieron trained to become vaccinators and worked at vaccine centres in Stafford, Telford and Manchester.

Stuart said: “Once restrictions were lifted events took off and the business was receiving bookings quicker than ever.
“At the start of 2022 we had already booked up most weekends and had won a contract with Telford and Wrekin Council as their event medical provider for the year. “

Stuart and Kieron also won contracts in Nottingham, Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Stafford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham.

They then bought a Land Rover Discovery and converted it into a 4×4 ambulance to provide off-road medical cover to high-risk events.

By mid-2022 they moved the business into office premises and by the end of the year they’d achieved sales of more than £120,000, had received awards including the Armed Forces Covenant and Disability Confident and bought two more vehicles.

The start of 2023 has seen them take on a unit to store their equipment and vehicles.
Stuart added: “We continue to recruit and now employ more than 30 staff, of which three are student paramedics from Staffordshire University.

“We have a training team who promote first aid courses and travel across the country providing quality courses, an events team who book, plan and run events across the West Midlands and we are a couple of steps away from applying for CQC registration to provide ambulance transport and remote emergency care.

“This will allow us to bid for contracts to transport patients to and from hospital, home and care homes and provide doctor level care at events pre-hospital.”

Now MW Medics Ltd has entered the Growth Category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
