160317_105

The Department of Economic Development has appointed Manx Roadracing Medical Services to provide medical services for the Isle of Man TT Races, the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling and the races around the Billown Circuit, the Southern 100 and the Pre- and Post-TT Classic Races.

The appointment was made following a tender process. The Manx Roadracing Medical Services team will be in place from this year’s TT Races and have already made the necessary appointments to provide comprehensive medical cover. It will be based in the ‘Hoggery’ in Nobles Park.

Manx Roadracing Medical Services has been set up by three experienced practioners with extensive knowledge and experience of Isle of Man Motorsport events.

Dr Gruff Evans, a General Practitioner on the Isle of Man, heads up the organisation. He has been providing medical services to motorsport events for 15 years, both in the Isle of Man and the UK and has been involved with the TT and Manx Grand Prix since 2002.

The team also includes Dr Gareth Davies and Dr Sally Simmons. Gareth has provided medical services for the TT and Manx Grand Prix for over 20 years. He is a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at The Royal London Hospital and is also Medical Director of London’s Air Ambulance.

Dr. Sally Simmons, a General Practitioner in Devon, is an ex-Armed Forces doctor and has been providing medical services to the TT and Billown Courses since 2013. Sally will be acting as Chief Medical Officer for all the Billown Course events. All three have already operated as Senor Medical Officers at the TT Races and Festival of Motorcycling.

The appointment comes as Dr David Stevens, MBE is stepping down after nearly forty years of providing cover for the Island’s Motorsport events. The new organisation will continue to work in partnership with established local providers including Hogg Motorsport as well as the Red Cross, St Johns Ambulance and the Rob Vine Fund.

Commenting on the appointment, Dr Gruff Evans said:
“We will look to work in partnership with experienced individuals and organisations based both on and off island in order to ensure that the high standards that David set over his thirty years are maintained.”

David Cretney, the Isle of Man Government’s Tourism and Motorsport representative commented: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank David for the major contribution he has made to motorsport on the Isle of Man. His commitment and professionalism has elevated the service that we provide to competitors to another level. It is reassuring that we have such a strong successor in Dr Gruff Evans and on behalf of everyone associated with Motorsport on the Isle of Man I’d like to welcome him into the role.”
