NEW MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FOR PHILIPHAUGH
JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED!

the new medical items on the main pitch at Philiphaugh.
SELKIRK RFC’s club doctor, Jeff Cullen, has announced that the recent fund-raising drive to buy new medical equipment
for use at Philiphaugh has successfully raised £700.
The new equipment includes a vacuum mattress, a basket stretcher, as well as knee splints. “The new equipment will
be used at the start of the 2017/2018 season,” said Jeff, “and will be a much-needed addition to the medical kit
already in place at the club.
“In particular it will ensure the best care for potentially spinal-injured players, allowing the safest way to
remove these individuals from the field of play.
“I am extremely grateful for the following organisations and individuals who contributed to the fundraising: Selkirk
Fund Runners, Selkirk Mini-Hockey, Colin Malcolm, the Rotary Club of Selkirk, the Ex-Soldiers Association and last
but not least Selkirk Rugby Club.
“I like to think our medical facilities are now almost as good as those found at BT Murrayfield!”
