The medical programme is overseen year round by our Nursing Team, which is headed by our Nursing Director, Natalie Marshall. The team will review your child’s application to ensure we can meet their needs at camp. They may contact you or your child’s nurse/doctor if they need further information.
Medical care at camp is provided by our ‘Beach Patrol’; a skilled team of volunteer nurses and doctors, under the direction of our Nursing Director or one of our Nursing Co-ordinators. Care is given in the ‘Beach Hut’, our beach themed medical room. Beach Patrol will be responsible for providing “home from home care”, which includes giving medications, NG/PEG feeds, carbohydrate counting, bladder/bowel care and other necessary care for your child at camp. Overnight there will be a nurse/doctor on call for emergencies. If your child is unwell, we may need to take them to hospital for treatment.
We have a Clinical Advisory Board, made up of medical and nursing experts, who provides consultation and advice in relation to clinical issues.
