Coordinators Pen Pictures
Steve Boyle - Dental Team.
I qualified in Liverpool 1979 and have spent most of my career in salaried dental services. I have provided dental services from mobiles and domiciliary settings for many years and have set up and run OOH services. Spent many a happy hour dealing with people's dental problems! I am currently an adviser in medical and dental performance issues.
I have been coming to Glastonbury regularly for nearly twenty years and know my way around the site in sun, rain, dust and mud!
Dr Mark Regi - Imaging Team.
The co-ordinator is Dr Mark Regi - He is an Interventional Radiologist and is currently the Endovascular Fellow at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.
Equipment: We currently use a mobile Phillips DR unit kindly donated by InHealth for plain films and report all images on a flatscreen desktop.
It is possible to transfer images onto CD for patient information or transfer. We use a Toshiba Viamo portable ultrasound machine with technical support support available. From 2010, Shane Hanlon will available for obstetric and gynaecology scans. The Radiologists are required to work one 24 hr shift over the festival.
Linda Bailey & Julian Barrett - Nurses Team
The Campsite Stewards team are responsible for running the Festival Medical Services Campsite and more often than not, we are the first FMS representatives that members meet at the Festivals. Our aim is to get everyone onto our sites with a smile and a minimum of fuss.
Dr Ruth Padday - Doctors.
Jill Canney -Physiotherapist
Jill is the Physiotherapy Co-ordinator. Jill's background is in Orthopaedic Medicine and general out-patients and more recently in the Community Rehabilitation Service for Somerset Community Health. She has worked in remote communities setting up physio services for surgeries and hospitals in Canada and also in South Africa with VSO. Physiotherapy has been a part of FMS since 1995 having started that year with 2 physios and a treatment couch working out of the back of Jill's van. Now the 13 strong team with a diversity of expertise and skills, works closely with the rest of the FMS health professionals, especially the Podiatrists, in the general medical tent.
2009 General membership news:
Our training day at Honiton Hospital last May 09 was a big success. Andrew Higgins, an A&E Physio from Plymouth, spoke to us in the morning, sharing his experience on assessment of acute injuries. The afternoon was spent familiarising ourselves with the material for splint making and some taping practice.
Claire Jones & Helen Rawcliffe - Radiology Team
We both work at Cheltenham General Hospital in Gloucestershire. We have both worked around the country and internationally and have more than 30 years experience between us.
Claire trained in Canterbury and has a husband and four children. Helen trained in Sheffield and is much too sensible to allow that to happen. We organise a small team of highly talented and motivated radiographers to cover Glastonbury Festival, sorting out all the paperwork and providing an efficient service.
