Our primary ‘MEDICAL CENTRE’ located near the entrance to the campsite village next to and near to the Steel Yard is open 24 hours a day across the event weekend with a wide range of fully trained medical staff including Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, First Responders and Mental Health practitioners.   Our team are able to deal with the full range of emergency and urgent care medical problems and offers the same range of services as a conventional Emergency Department, including an on-site X-Ray service.  In addition to the primary MEDICAL and WELFARE points, we have various medical response teams positioned across the festival site as well as foot patrols across the campsite and event arena.


If you need Medical or First Aid assistance, and if you can, head to the MEDICAL CENTRE on site or approach a member of our First Aid or Medical teams who will be able assist.  If it’s an emergency reach out to the closest member of staff who will be able to contact our Event Control and get assistance to you; only dial 999 as a last resort as this may not be the best way of getting help to you on the festival site.
We don’t recommend that you try to make your own way off site to hospital, access to medical treatment is available on site, you may delay receiving treatment by trying to access health services elsewhere, if the medical site team do feel you need transfer to Hospital services they will make the appropriate arrangements.

Where is Welfare?

Located directly next to the Medical Centre is the ‘WELFARE TENT’ which is open 24 hours a day across the event weekend.   The Welfare Crew offers non-judgemental support to those vulnerable either through substance use, mental health, are a victim of an assault or sexual assault or those that are finding the festival environment too overwhelming in that moment.  A festival atmosphere and large crowds can be a trigger for some people, and our Welfare Tent is a safe space facilitated by trained and experienced staff where people can be cared for until they feel able to head back into the festival if they wish.

Their staff come from a range of professional backgrounds including drug and alcohol services, mental health, social care, youth, and medical services, with all staff trained in safeguarding and supporting victims of assault and recognising mental health and how to give immediate support.

The welfare team can also support you with arranging how to get home in an emergency, by making phone calls to family and friends to pick you up and then support you to the gates.


Do you have Back of House drug testing facilities? 

We continue to work with HazmatLINK who have been providing their back of house testing services at Creamfields for many years.  Their knowledge and expertise in identifying substances of concern allows us to alert festival goers based on results from our on-site lab.
