Emergency Procedures – Injury

In the event of an emergency/serious injury the emergency services should be contacted immediately via 999 using the instructions on display in the Clubhouse

There is a telephone situated at the bar, when the area is closed mobile phones should be used.

It is MANDATORY that at any training session or match there MUST BE A FIRST AID BOX and a MOBILE PHONE in the possession of a Coach or Team Manager

Should there be an incident, a responsible person shall be dispatched to the nearest available First Aider who will attend to the casualty.  If this is sufficient, the First Aider will remain with the casualty until the risk is reduced or, if the casualty is a minor, until they are relieved by a parent/carer.

Should a First Aider not be available, the Coach/Team Manager will be required to assess the situation and make a decision whether medical help shall be called.  It is important to err on the side of caution and, if unsure, to call for help.
