REQUEST FOR MEMBERS’ MEDICAL INFORMATION
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO MEMBERS FROM CLUB WELFARE OFFICER JULIE SMILLIE
We have recently tightened up our policies and procedures as the club is in the process of attaining Clubmark Re-accreditation. Our First Aid cupboards are now labelled and Incident/Accident Folders are now also in cupboards, with instructions of how to record the incident and to whom the details should then be passed.
The club is also required to “take reasonable steps to obtain information on any medical conditions of its members.”
I would therefore ask if any Member who has any significant medical condition that may result in a medical emergency during play, could inform me, in case an incident occurs. The information is going to be kept on a club database but will not be publicly displayed, although it would be useful for you to at least tell your team mates if any condition applies to you.
Examples of such conditions would be diabetes, allergies, heart problems, respiratory difficulties or epilepsy.
Please email or telephone me with any condition you feel fits the above criteria.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Julie Smillie, NMTTC Welfare Officer.
