FIRST AID PROVISION & REQUIREMENTS 2022-23
As has been forewarned over the last couple of seasons, Regulation 9 Guidelines have been formally
revised and are now Standards. Basically all age group teams will require trained first aid cover for
training and matches in accordance with the attached document. The nominated first aider should
be entered in GMS and a First Aid risk assessment will need to be completed along with a club
Medical Emergency Action Plan.

If you want to book a course or to place someone on a course hosted by a club please get in touch as
demand is high.
There are two one day courses available in Exeter from RFU on 22nd and 23rd September, bookable via
GMS. PHICIS courses provide a higher level of training and are suited to active club First Aiders with
suitable experience levels. If anyone requires more information regarding eligibility or suitability
contact CRFU RugbySafe Lead.
CRFU is also examining a joint plan with Plymouth University whereby their Physiotherapy students
will do the course and become PHICIS and thereafter available to a club for the coming season. The
skill level is more suited to adult rugby. Many of the students are from Cornish towns and the aim
would be to match local teams with the students where possible. Experience elsewhere with similar
schemes has shown that the students swiftly become assimilated into the life of the teams and form
long-term relationships with the club. If any club is interested in being part of the scheme, please get in touch.
