Radio Medical Denmark is a 24-7 telemedicine specialty unit, whose mission is to offer medical advice to Danish registered vessels in the merchant and fishing fleet. Foreign flag states’ vessels can also contact Dansk Radio Medical; cf. ILO’s Maritime Labor Convention (MLC2006).
The ships contact the service by either telephone or email. In emergencies by telephone, and in less urgent conditions electronically by email.
In cooperation with the Danish military, evacuations of acutely ill patients are initiated primarily by helicopter. In some situations, the ship can land the patient by searching the nearest port and thereby deviating from the original route.
