Diary from Tokyo – a month in the life of a Team GB HQ Doctor, Dr Alastair Nicol, Senior Consultant at Prometheus Medical
It's been four weeks of unbelievable excitement here at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, and as one of the Team GB HQ Doctors based at the OLV (Olympic Village), it has been a great privilege to have been involved.
A 3,000+ Mile Solo Row Across the North Atlantic
Early this summer Prometheus Medical Global is sponsoring Ian Rivers, a former SAS soldier, as he embarks on his next challenge – Row Sentinel – a 3,000+ mile solo unsupported row across the North Atlantic from New York to the Scilly Isles. This is actually “rowing in reverse,” which is the opposite way and going against the Gulf – all while he’s only using a sextant and charts, rather than GPS, to guide him on this journey. We are proud to support Ian on his inspiring journey as he puts human endurance, navigation and seamanship to the ultimate test while raising funds for the Special Air Service Regimental Association (SASRA) and St Michael’s Hospice.
On Saturday, the team at AlphaMed headed to the home of Scottish Rugby, to be on standby for any medical assistance during the Scotland v England game at Murrayfield.
The team, made up of medical managers, doctors and first aiders attended the game to ensure that the 67,000 spectators and staff attending had the best, and safest time possible whilst enjoying a game of high-class rugby.
After another busy year for Prometheus, it was time for the team to hit the slopes again.
For one week of the year, the team are able to swap the office setting for the beautiful surroundings of St Gervais-les-Bains. Located in the Auvergne-Rhone region of South-Eastern France, St Gervais is home to around 450km of ski pistes, thought to be the third largest ski area in France.
