The team welcomes new applicants from:
Paramedics or Doctors with two years post-qualification, on-the-road experience
Nurses with experience in Emergency Medicine
There is the opportunity for those from different medical professions
or those with less experience, to come to observe a round and
join the team as a 'medical marshal'. The organisers do not pay
expenses for this role but you will get a ticket and lunch and free
camping on circuit is available.
Decide which round you would like to attend to observe and click here
for the application form. Please make sure to give your
qualification (role), experience and current post as well as the round
that you'd like to observe. Your address will be the one
used to send a ticket to you in the week before the event, so please
give the most appropriate address and include the postcode.
What to Expect
Observers are treated as part of the team and we strongly
suggest that you attend for at least two, if not all three, days of the
round that you observe.
The day usually starts at 7:30 - 8am, with doctors and paramedics going
out on track from about 8:15 onwards. You will need to arrive
promptly, in order to sort out signing on (for insurance purposes),
meeting the person that you'll spend the day with, getting a set of
loan overalls and lunch. The nurses organise tea, coffee
and toast-making materials, so you will be able to make yourself
breakfast and fill a thermos if you wish. They ask for a donation
of 50p per day to cover costs.
Unsurprisingly, the weather can change and you may be out on track all
day, in a place with little shelter, so bring warm, waterproof clothes
and decent footwear - boots with ankle support are best. Hat,
gloves and sun screen are also recommended. We have overalls to loan
out, so you do not have to bring PPI and all necessary medical kit is
provided. Also bring a thermos mug and any extra snacks
that you may want, a packed lunch is provided.
A ticket and further information will be sent out during the week before the event. Guest tickets are not available.
Evening and Camping
Most of the team camp with the marshals on the on-circuit
campsite. It is a good opportunity to meet more of the team
members and learn about what happens. We also try to eat together and
you are very welcome to join the communal evening meal. It is
cooked by one of the team members (or a volunteer family member) for a
cost of £5 per night. You will need to bring a chair, plate and
cutlery and whatever beverage you prefer to drink.
Please note that there is a noise curfew, no engines, at 11pm on the
marshal campsite. If you arrive particularly late in the evening,
you may need to park outside and carry your equipment in quietly.
