Our pitch side first aid cover utilises highly skilled, graduate practitioners, all of whom are specialists in their own field. In addition, they also have an extra qualification in sports trauma care and injury management. This gives you the assurance that our therapists are regulated by and conform to guidelines set down by sporting governing bodies such as the RFU and FA.

The Prime Practice believes in using highly qualified practitioners to cover sporting events. This means that not only is there medical support for players but also provides reassurance for coaches and parents alike.

Helping you meet the regulations

We will ensure that the provision we offer meets the requirements of the sporting governing bodies. 

Over the last few years the RFU, FA and many other sporting governing bodies have introduced initiatives that outline to schools and clubs the minimum requirements of medical care for sporting events. 

We guarantee that our practitioners conform to these guidelines and have the recognised qualifications to cover your sporting event. 

Player Welfare Services

We work on a regular basis with directors of sport, teachers, coaching staff and pastoral heads regarding a player’s injury status and their ongoing treatment plans.

We also work closely with school medical centres ensuring that transfer of information from playing field to medical centre staff is smooth and comprehensive. If a school does not have this provision a direct hand over to coaching staff and/or parents will be given.

We are also able to offer consultancy services which cover additional medical management opportunities utilising highly qualified staff
