With all your preparations for the Gold Cup, safety may not be the first thing
on your mind. However, after many years of having a specially trained doctor at
every match, Cowdray Park Polo Club has decided to have paramedic cover only.
In response, Dr
Bradstock-Smith has been asked to provide additional expert medical cover by
fifty teams playing at Cowdray, including many teams playing in the Gold
If you wish to take advantage of this service too, the details are as
trained and fully equipped
immediate care doctor:
cost is reduced to just £55.00 when playing against a team that is
already a client of mine, and includes any treatment provided on the ground including analgesia
and suturing etc. In other words: there are no hidden extras.
You might like
to know that Dr Bradstock-Smith was the Medical Officer at Cowdray Park Polo
Club for seven years, and has been the doctor at over 2400 polo matches,
including all the High Goal at Cowdray, and treated over 600 polo injuries,
giving him possibly more experience of polo accidents than any other doctor or
paramedic in the country.
Examples of what this cover provides, over and above that
provided by Cowdray Park Polo Club, include:
most advanced life-saving skills that can only be performed by a trained
pre-hospital doctor, e.g. tracheotomy
specialist skills unlikely to be provided by ambulance crews, e.g.
replacement of dislocated shoulder, removal of stubborn foreign bodies from
the eye etc
drugs including the strongest pain-relieving injections such as
site and not having to travel and wait at A&E instead
medical assessment of minor injuries on site
