1.4 How does the registration process work?

If you have read through the requirements about acting as a Doctor or Paramedic and you are sure that there is nothing to stop you, you can register with us by filling in the registration form on the website.

If it is your first time working with us, we also ask you to send us your CV, which can also be uploaded via the registration form. When you have registered we will send you an information pack through the post, which will contain a lot of important information about the events we cover, and the services we provide.

If you have worked with us before (or with or predecessors Motorsport Medical Services) there is no need for you to send us your CV but we still ask you to fill out the registration form each year so that we know which events you are available for and also to make sure that we have up to date contact details.

Each year, around October, we will put the new registration form for the following year on the website. At that time we will contact all of the people on our database by e-mail and invite them to go to the website to fill out the form. We will do this each year for all of the people on our database (until you tell us to stop, which you can do as one of the options on the form). We appreciate that it can be difficult for people to know very far in advance what their availability might be, and that not everyone will be able to tell us straight away. We will, however, remind you occasionally by e-mail, if we haven’t heard anything (if we accidently send you a reminder when you have already completed the form, please forgive us! It’s a new system!)

If, on your registration form, you have indicated that you are able to work during TT, we will contact you, by e-mail, in January/February and ask you to complete a more detailed availability form, telling us which sessions you can work. We will also ask you at that time whether you are able to provide cover during the Pre TT and Post TT races on the Billown Course. Again, if we don’t hear from you we will send an occasional e-mail reminder.

This process will be repeated slightly later in the year for those people that have indicated they can provide cover during the Southern 100 races and, finally it will be repeated again for those people that have indicated they can provide cover during the Festival of Motorcycling. On each occasion you will be sent, by e-mail, a link to follow in order to fill in your availability form and submit it to us.

We believe that most people will find this way of sending information to us more convenient than a paper based system. However we are happy to send you availability forms in the post if you prefer. There is the option on the registration form for this.

2016 will obviously be a transition period as we move to the new, more electronic registration system and we ask you to bear with us during the process.

Many thanks for your interest, and we look forward to working with you.
