The new RugbySafe webpages have now been launched on the England Rugby website, which provides more comprehensive information including a section called “Being a RugbySafe Club” which replaces the previous Community Game First Aid & Immediate Care Guidelines document.
Essential Guides and resources can be read and downloaded here.
First Aid/ Immediate Care Provision
For U16 - Adult CB rep games, a PHICIS trained Health Care Professional is required, this doesn’t have to be a doctor. However whether a doctor or any other HCP, anyone providing immediate pitch-side cover should have undertaken the PHICIS (or appropriate equivalent) training. Such roles are listed here.
Minimum Operating standards are laid out in this two page document.
Mental Health Initiatives are promoted here.
RugbySafe reserach, including the CRISP report can be found here.
