Doctors providing assistance at sporting events

The BMA’s Board of Science has published an updated version of its resource for doctors providing assistance at sporting events, which can be accessed via the BMA website.
The aim of this resource is to provide information for doctors who are interested in providing medical care at sporting events in a professional (whether paid or unpaid) capacity. In particular, it emphasises the importance of a doctor contacting their medical defence organisation prior to assisting or providing care at a sporting event.
This resource was first published in 2001, with an updated version in 2009. This latest edition, published in August 2011, includes specific guidance for doctors providing medical care at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
