The pre-employment medical scheme was established in 1996. The first of its kind amongst the International Group of Clubs, the aim of the Programme is: to reduce the volume, and value, of illness and repatriation claims which related to pre-existing medical conditions.
Our enhanced medical examination screens the major body organs in order to detect the most common physical health conditions and prevent crew falling ill whilst onboard. Maintaining physical health during service at sea is very important. A sick crewmember not only puts their own health at risk but can also negatively impact on ship operations and safety onboard.
Poor mental health can affect crew of all ages, nationalities and ranks. Support, awareness and education is the key in recognising mental health issues and the first step in order to support crew on the journey to recovery.
The Crew Health team regularly join forces with our approved clinic physicians and partners to provide the latest advice and information on a range of crew health subjects. With a focus being on education and awareness we have produced a collection of high quality, informative guides. These are aimed for the employer and the individual crew in order to prevent and manage common medical conditions.
The Club has long recognised partnerships with clinics all over the World who support our PEME Programme. In addition to our clinic network we now work alongside a few chosen companies and societies who specialise in maritime crew health matters.
