Return2Play launches new service for touring teams – “Doctor on Tour”

16 April 2018

Return2Play is excited to announce the launch of a new service which will ensure players receive the highest possible standards of care, even when touring abroad.

The service – named “Doctor on Tour” – came about following discussions with partner schools who were seeking ways to enhance the medical support they have while touring.

Dr Sam Barke, Medical Director of Return2Play, commented:

We are delighted to be able to expand our services and further commit to helping organisations provide the highest level of care to their players. Feedback from our partner schools is that managing injury or illness while on tour is one of the issues that causes staff the most worry. It is our hope that this service provides both staff and parents with the peace of mind that players will be well looked after, wherever they are in the world.– “S.Barke”

Initially, two levels of support will be offered. The first – “Remote Support” – will provide a 24/7 line to UK doctors for immediate medical advice and webcam assessments of injury or illness. The second – “On Tour Support” – will enable touring sides to take a doctor on tour with them.
