The medical form should be completed before the child leaves for a long trip or overnight event. It should be kept by the accompanying adults in case of an emergency and must be kept confidential.
In some countries, children cannot be given medication by anyone other than a medical professional, in which case this form should not be used to record anything other than contact details and basic information regarding allergies, etc. which can
be passed on to the hospital in case of an emergency.
Clubs/organisations need to check the laws on giving medical treatment in their countries and whether common medications can be given by accompanying adults.
