This season Kent RFU along with England Rugby RugbySafe Programme is conducting a survey of First Aid provision in clubs in our constituency body.

This survey will attempt to establish what medical cover clubs have during training and match days and festivals in-line with RFU Regulation 9 (Player Safety) The data your club will provide will enable Kent RFU to establish areas of good practice and areas that require assistance to meet this, which may include arranging RFU Emergency First Aid courses, Volunteer recruitment assistance in producing First Aid Risk Assessments and Emergency Action Plans etc. 

Collected data will also enable Kent RFU to prioritise areas that require resources more urgently and arrange CPDs and Courses within reasonable travelling distance for clubs in those areas if there is sufficient demand. As well as training data will be used to assist clubs who require assistance in recruiting Volunteers for medical/physio cover wherever possible outside of Rugby. 

Download and  return our questionnaire to  no later than 20 June 2019

Questionnaire download.

A recent survey found that one of the main reasons for senior player retention and recruitment was the fear or injuries resulting in time of employment.

Please watch out for posts from Kent RFU about RugbySafe Activate Program and how to prepare and hopefully prevent injuries Pre Season Training and throughout the coming season
