2004 is committed to the provision of onsite
first-response medical service for everyone
attending the 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This service will be designed to meet the
specific needs of the different groups. Athletes
will have a dedicated team of doctors and
physiotherapists to support and assist them,
should they become ill or injured during an
event. In addition, a dedicated team of doctors,
nurses and first aid officers will provide a
first response service to all spectators,
members of the media, staff and volunteers.
2004 is working closely with the Ministry of
Health and Welfare to ensure that this onsite
service is linked to EKABís ambulances and a
network of dedicated Olympic Hospitals. This
will allow the seamless transfer and admission
of any individual who requires extra care than
the one provided on site.
