Following on from last week’s confirmation that both the Swindon Wildcats and Swindon Topcats are classed as Elite sports teams and are exempt from the new Government ‘Rule Of Six’, we are looking to fans of Ice Hockey in Swindon to support us we look closer to return to the ice.

Under the guidelines outlined by the DCMS for Elite sports teams we would like to appoint a Club Medical Officer who would be able to support both the Wildcats and Topcats.

The Club Medical Officer would be the lead on ensuring any suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases are managed in line with our management protocols.

The appointed Club Medical Officer would have medical oversight of the return to training of any athletes with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 and would also work with the Club’s COVID-19 Officer to ensure any risk assessments meet have accurate medical aspects.

It would be essential that any applicant is familiar with emerging evidence related to COVID-19 pathology and would be expected to carry out the above roles.

For more information, or to apply to be the Club Medical Officer please send an email to steve.nell@swindonwildcats.com
