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. 

To Apply
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.
