Mediclinic and ER24 at the HSBC Cape Town Sevens

Posted on 18 December 2017

Mediclinic Southern Africa and ER24 were proud to provide world class medical support to the HSBC Sevens Rugby tournament hosted at Cape Town stadium in December. The medical team delivered according to the stringent requirements of World Rugby and the South African Rugby union and ensured that the international athletes had expert care. Our hospital team consisted of Emergency, sports physicians and ICU trained nurses. Field side our capable ER24 medical team safely extricated the players off the field. We were supported by the local hospitals in the area, and made sure that all players had expert care from field side to discharge from hospital.  This event is not only a highlight for Cape Town, but also for the medical crew who are honoured to be of service at such a prestigious event.

The video below illustrates the passion and planning involved and provides interviews with key medical support crew at the event, highlighting their different roles within this internationally recognized event.

We would like to thank all of our team members for delivering beyond the call of duty and making Mediclinic Southern Africa and ER24 proud!
