The Intrepid Medics


Toby Gilbert

Hi, I'm Toby. I gained my Paramedic registration in 2012, after which I spent 4 years working full time in London on Ambulances and Fast Response Units, where I first met Andy. After transferring to a locum contract I enrolled in a MSc in Global Health at Maastricht University in the Netherlands and spent time at Kasturba Medical School in Manipal, India. After completing my studies I went back to London to work for the Ambulance Service and Intern for a Global Health NGO. Realising my love for travel and paramedicine I began teaching and providing medical support in a variety of countries in Europe, Africa and Asia - often with Andy and Andrei. My interests include climbing, snowboarding, surfing, more recently horse riding and anything that gets me outdoors!

Andrei Gavrilut

Hey, I'm Andrei. The journey that brought me here started about 15yrs ago in Paris when I joined the French Foreign Legion. That was a pretty epic adventure that went on for a number of years and took me to places like Africa & the Middle East and steered my focus towards medicine. Initially combat medicine, followed later by pre-hospital & wilderness medicine. I retrained as a paramedic after leaving the FFL, and spent several years working in different countries across 4 continents, being fortunate enough to meet amazing people like Andy and Toby. Outside medicine, I love extreme sports, skydiving, base-jumping, free-diving and lots of other activities that allow me to connect with nature, and meet interesting people.

Andy Fraser

Hello I'm Andy. My medical career started as a street paramedic in London where I first met Toby. I only ever wanted to work in the wilderness though, so I then began working for various NGOs in sub-Saharan Africa before finding my calling in remote search and rescue. Andrei and I then met whilst training the Syrian White Helmets, where after a time Toby joined our team and the idea for this thing of ours was forged! I've been lucky enough to work in nearly every part of this beautiful world with two of the finest gentlemen I know. Long may it continue!
