We are service providers to companies like Crisis on Call, International SOS, Europ Assistance, CSIR and Denel Dynamics. We provide 24 Hour Contact Centre Access for Emergency Medical Response to these companies on a national basis through the SAPAESA National Ambulance Network.


We believe that our clients and patients are at the centre of all that we do. We also believe in supporting the communities that we operate in and we are involved in many community projects throughout the year. We are proud of our name – Life Med – and we will continue to grow and always focus on our slogan: Your Life – Our Priority.


LifeMed was established in 2006 with only two ambulances and a vision of serving the community with the highest possible level of emergency medical care available. Since then we have expanded hugely, and continue doing so, especially through our newest venture – our Air Wing – by which we can spread our wings to the furthest parts of the country and even beyond its borders.
