Guidance for England Boxing Supervisors in the event of a medical emergency is detailed below.
All England Boxing Supervisors are reminded that in the case of a medical suspension the protocol in the England Rule Book at 11.3.8 and 11.3.9 is to occur.
On completion of the Post-Bout medical the Supervisor and Ringside Doctor or Recorder (as directed by Supervisor or Doctor) are to complete the relevant sections of the BCR1, and any medical suspension is to be written clearly and highlighted.
The Supervisor is then to photograph the details of the Boxer and the suspension and email this to the Regional Secretary and Regional Registrar for their records.
Only the Coach of the Boxer, or the Boxer, is permitted to collect the BCR1 from the Supervisor.
If a medical suspension has been awarded, then the Coach is to collect the BCR1 and is to be briefed by the Dr on any effects that may occur due to the reason for the Medical Suspension.
- Cut – information on any ongoing treatment ie stitch removal.
- KO or RSC with no sign of concussion – The Coach is to be issued with a T10 form – England Boxing Medical Care of a Boxer After a Contest. Coaches are to be briefed by the Dr on the contents of the form and how to act should the Boxer present with any of the symptoms listed on it.
- Concussion – The Coach is to be issued with a T10 form – England Boxing Medical Care of a Boxer After a Contest and a concussion protocol appropriate to the age of the Boxer. A comprehensive explanation is to be given to the Coach of the Boxer on how to manage the Boxer.
