1.3 Can other healthcare professionals work on the TT course?

The Auto Cycle Union (ACU) governs all aspects of road racing on the Mountain Course and the Billown Course, including the requirements for the medical services. Currently, they specify the use of Doctors and Paramedics and as a result we are not able to use other healthcare professionals. However, we are looking at ways of changing that, particularly with regard to the role of suitably qualified and experienced nurses. There are a number of issues to deal with, but check back here regularly because the situation may change.

In the meantime, if you are not a Doctor or Paramedic but are keen to be a part of the medical services on the Mountain Course or the Billown Course, there are other ways you can get involved. We have a number of First Aiders, Advanced First Aiders etc. who work as a part of the team. We do not recruit them directly, but they are provided for us by our Partner organisations, British Red Cross, St.John Ambulance and Hogg Motorsport. If you think you might be interested in joining on of these organisations you should contact them directly.

Alternatively, you could consider signing on as a marshal with the TT Marshals Association. All of the marshals within each team on the course have a specific role. One of those is to look after the casualty. As an individual with a healthcare background it is highly likely that you would take on that role.
