The health and wellbeing of seafarers is a key priority for the Club. Every year, the Club records several claims that are found to be a result of pre-existing or congenital illnesses, such as heart related problems. In some cases, such underlying conditions have proven life-threatening, in part due to the remote trading areas of a vessel and the lack of adequate evacuation facilities in the vicinity. In addition to the challenges in providing immediate medical assistance, such situations inflict immeasurable stress and trauma on seafarers’ families who wait anxiously for news and updates.
