I had a sudden thought today…
Why do we collect doctor’s details on TG21/22s?
Under what circumstances would this be useful information?
If a cadet was unwell on an activity, I’d be asking them about history / calling parents. Likewise for staff, I’d be asking them. (If I couldn’t ask them, it’d likely be a 999 call first anyway).
Equally, how often would a GP be able to give useful information to me if I did call? My GP’s closed during most cadet activity hours, and would they be willing to give sensitive information to a random caller (I would hope not)?
So where is it useful?
