- In November 2013 a contractor with NES Global Talent was evacuated from Iraq at a cost of £37,247 which was paid by our policy. This was not pre-authorised. Many competitors would have only paid 50% of the cost.
- Early in 2014 an NES Global Talent Contractor was evacuated from China to Hong Kong to receive vital treatment but very sadly passed away some weeks later. During this sad time his daughter was flown out to join him and stayed in HK for 2 weeks. All the travel and hotel costs were paid by our insurer.
Our candidates’ challenge
Our contractor, a Malaysian national, suffered a detached retina as a result of a non-work related accident while on assignment in Nigeria. He required urgent assistance if he was to regain his vision.
With the support of our global medical partners, we flew our contractor to London, the nearest medical center of excellence, on a doctor escorted plane, where he was able to attend a specialist eye hospital. We also arranged for our contractor’s wife and immediate family to fly out from Malaysia to London to be with him while he was having his operation and was recovering.
With his family around him, our contractor underwent an operation to reattach his retina and made a full recovery in London, completely regaining his vision.
