covid-officerSport Wales have mandated that all NGBs should have a named Coronavirus Medical Officer.  Welsh Fencing is therefore seeking volunteers to fulfil this role.

The role is to maintain familiarity with the emerging evidence related to post-Coronavirus pathology, and the individual will be expected to:

  • Lead on ensuring any suspected or confirmed Coronavirus cases are managed in line with the sport’s Coronavirus case management protocols and current government guidance;
  • Have medical oversight of the return to training of any athletes that had suspected or confirmed cases of Coronavirus; and
  • Support the NGB’s Coronavirus officer with any medical aspects of the risk assessment and mitigation process, and similarly advise the Coronavirus officers appointed by any club or facility falling under the remit of that NGB.

We do not see this as an onerous role, but are keen to ensure the role is filled with someone with the appropriate medical experience.  If you are interested in fulfilling this role, please contact Matt Russell (matthew.russell@fencing.cymru), with a brief outline of your medical experience.
