About the SMMC Motorsport Medical Group

How to get involved

There are a wide range of opportunities to work as part of the safety response team on motorsport events, and there is always a need for more doctors, paramedics, nurses and rescue team members.

Doctors and paramedics attending motorsport meetings as "medical officers" must be in possession of a valid licence to practice.

Doctors must be registered with the GMC and paramedics must be registered with the HCPC.

FY1 and FY2 doctors may not act as "medical officers" at an event. Trainees beyond FY2 must ensure that the Approved Practice Setting restriction has been removed from their licence by the GMC.

Students can join Rescue teams as trainees and work towards a full Rescue licence. You will be working alongside medics and other rescue crew so will gain experience and many transferable skills. You can find out more about Rescue Teams at smmc.org.uk/rescue
