Emergency Procedures Guide
A responsible member of the club should be delegated to meet the emergency services on the access road.
Remember that access to the pitches is limited. The preferred option is for the medical staff to walk onto the grass, assess the situation and determine the best way forward.
Should the injured player be admitted to hospital following their initial treatment then notification of this must be sent to the RFU using the Reportable Injuries Form (available from the website). The Form should be passed to the Hon Secretary at the earliest opportunity for onward transmission to the RFU. When calling the postcode which should be quoted is DT11 7LU.
Note: The Minor Injuries Unit at Blandford Hospital is not open after 1800 on weekdays and is open over the weekend between 1000 –1600. The nearest hospital for those who are capable of being taken there by another member of the club or parent with an A&E Department is either Poole or Dorchester.
Should you require emergency medical assistance at the pitches the method for contacting them is by mobile phone. There is no land line available.
