No Im afraid that you are incorrect, my knowledge is based on 22 years experience as a Coastguard officer. If in doubt contact the nearest Coastguard station to yourself. This was the procedure that was used up until I was made redundant in 2012. As a Watch Manager I dealt with medical emergencies on numerous occasions.

The RYA's newest radio book has some glaring errors in it !

Correct - it is possible some blokes on coastguard watch fall asleep due to isolation - the world then passes them unnoticed.

Sorry SPR the RYA in their wisdom believed that the Panpan medico ceased to exist. HM Coastguard did not take control we took co-ordination. What we took over from the Coast Radio stations was the 'radio link call' procedure. Even before this date HM Coastguard was responsible for all 'medical evacuations'. There is no 'written' statement from the radio people nor the IMO to the fact that Pan Medico is no longer used. Until such time as I see it I will continue to state otherwise.

These links all show Medico, wikipedia might not be the best choice but it still highlights it.

Pan-pan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Handbook of Offshore Cruising: The Dream and Reality of Modern Ocean Cruising - Jim Howard - Google Books
RA292 - Non-GMDSS VHF Radiotelephone Procedures
http://www.rgyc.org.uk/forms/pg_37_2012.pdf

Indaba1991 if you cant come back with constructive information dont lower the tone with inane comments. HM Coastguard continue to give 24 hr cover to assist those in difficulty on the sea not to 'let the world' pass them by

Steady on mate - just a bit of ribbing! But I do suggest you do an up to date radio course. Pan Pan Medico has never been considered a correct radio term - it just crept in (in the UK) over the years. And you are right - wiki is really not the place to base all your judgements. And PS - I bet I know more coastguard and MCA people than you do.

Well I think so - a disciple of Anthony Trollope?
