Congratulations to the medical team who were featured in the Gold Coast Bulletin today in recognition of the Games Volunteers! 👏
I had a wonderful experience as a doctor in the athlete’s village. It was an absolute pleasure and honour to be working alongside a fantastic team of doctors, nurses and health professionals from across the globe providing first class care.
Just 10 days to go until the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! ⚽️🏀🥊🤽♂️🏊♂️🚴♀️ I’m honoured to have been selected as a games doctor serving athletes and spectators at the heart of the Commonwealth Games Village.
Heat related illnesses such as dehydration, sun burn and sun stroke will be one of the most common presentations for medical aid. To make the most of your games experience be sure to always keep well hydrated, keep out of the sun and wear at least spf 30 sunblock. If you do feel unwell at anytime, present yourself to one of the friendly first aid team for help.
Just picked up my Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Uniform!
The best thing about it, is that it features high UV protection. Which will be essential for those days on the field looking after athletes!
In case you didn’t know the Gold Coast Commonwealth games will be the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! It’s taking place from 4th -15th April and will feature over 6,600 athletes from all over the world.
If you’re out and about always wear sun protection and for more advice and health tips come and see me in clinic.
