The MYA Scottish District covers the geographic areas of Scotland and Northern Ireland. Different government…
As discussed at the 2018 MYA Scottish District AGM, the principle was unanimously accepted that whilst medical information is confidential – “Your health is your responsibility”.
In line with this and based on the experience of hill walking clubs, it was agreed that the form (Personal_medical_info_form) would be provided to all MYA-SD Club members with the intention that individual skippers:-
- would complete it with their personal medical information;
- keep it in their personal sailing tool boxes in a waterproof zip-lock plastic bag for quick access by first responders/Emergency Services in the event that something serious should occur whilst at a club or Scottish District event.
Please note that whilst all skippers are strongly recommended to do this, it is NOT a condition of sailing imposed by the MYA SD Committee.
