The Carta Medical Team

The Carta Medical Team

The Dutch medical team consists of 2 EMS nurses, 2 anaesthetists and 2 trauma surgeons. All team  members have experience in treating trauma patients on a daily basis in the Netherlands. The team loves to go off the grid and to help you make the most of your Carta rallye.

We will have a base in the hotel or bivouac, clearly signposted. You will meet us on route in several vehicles aided by an additional off road medical team from Poland.
