Victorian Medical Assistance Team was founded out of an idea by Brady Matthews & Dr Travis Taggert. This idea was to respond to a community need by providing guaranteed quality, advanced and experienced Health Care Professionals to an ever growing diverse event market. With their combined years of experience in the Event Health Service Industry (First Aid & Advanced First Aid), it was evident that this service was needed.
