Motorbike medicine: The GP practising on a race track


Dear Dr Tea, Paramedics don't discharge patients, only hand them over to doctors. As a track medical officer myself, I can perform the paramedic role as described in the article, for significant injuries, and I can also fully treat and discharge patients with more minor injuries, or illnesses, clear them to return to racing, (or not), prescribe, and give Fit Notes.
