Paul Savage OBE BSc SRP

Paul walked into a Lifeboat station on his 17th birthday and never left, initially volunteering at Poole and now at Tower Lifeboat in London. He has been a SAR volunteer medic for 34 years.

Initially qualifying and practicing as a Chartered Physiotherapist, he undertook paramedical training during the 1990s.

With his interest in remote and maritime paramedical medicine he joined the RNLI full time in 2005 as the Clinical Operations Manager and Head of Operational Medicine. He was responsible for the operational medical response of all of the UK and Eire’s Lifeboat crew, Lifeguards and Flood Response teams, as well as the architect and custodian of the Clinical Governance of the RNLI.  He advised on all matters casualty care related – from kit carried, casualty care course design to casualty-friendly boat design.

For a complete step change of SAR maritime medicine around the UK, Paul was awarded an OBE in December 2013.

Since 2014 as Managing Director of his company Saviour Medical Ltd , Paul has a mixed portfolio of pre-hospital medical related work; including check card based learning resources, casualty care course design, clinical governance, university Lecturing and high end medical moulage and simulation. Paul is also a member of the teaching faculty for elite sections of the UK Military.

If required, Paul brings his years of expertise in crisis related education and bringing realism to moulage courses to any bespoke High Stakes Courses. 


 Paul is the Managing Director of Saviour Medical.

Saviour Medical is a stand alone company with whom we work closely and are proud to promote.
