Andy Thomas, Managing Director of CIPHER Medical said, “To be working with a distinguished client such as Tough Mudder is excellent news for both the company and great news for the North East. After leaving the Royal Air Force 3 years ago and setting up CIPHER medical, it’s great to be putting the skills and leadership tools learned on deployed operations such as Afghanistan to event medical care. This small company has grown rapidly over the past few years and we are very proud to be working with Tough Mudder. It is a testament to our team of predominantly North East Based professionals and clinical staff that allow us to deliver high standards of care and innovative event solutions. We look forward to the 2019 season and sending teams of up to 50 people and numerous vehicles to events at locations all around the UK. Our vast experience at attending events such as the Indoor Athletics Championship in Birmingham, the Tall Ships in Liverpool, plus hundreds of other events coupled with our significant investment in kit and equipment means we will deliver the highest standards of event medical care to Tough Mudder and other clients.”
