Pre-existing medical conditions

Posted on

At a recent Sunday Run a member collapsed and was treated by a member who is a doctor. He was taken to hospital and recovered well.

The incident prompted the committee to decide to keep a folder at the start/finish area with details of relevant member medical conditions. While it will be marked ‘medical confidential’ we cannot guarantee it won’t be seen by a general member.

If you would like a relevant condition to be listed in this folder, please send an email to Carol Bowman, who is a qualified nurse. carol.bowman@optusnet.com.au

Member emergency contact numbers are kept at the start/finish and are also written on the new member tags.
