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.
