On July 11, the Society Seneschal announced that the Office of Chirurgeon will be disbanded effective August 10, A.S. L (2015).
The Æthelmearc Gazette asked our Kingdom Chirurgeon, Baroness Constance Glyn Dŵr, what’s next for those who wish to render (or receive) first aid assistance at SCA events. Here is her reply:
Worry not my fellow citizens of Æthelmearc, though the BOD may disband the Chirurgeons as an SCA office, we are still here. Several months ago, a small group of dedicated individuals came together to form a Chirurgeon’s Guild, to continue the tradition of the Chirurgeons and to provide first aid for those that request it at events held by the SCA. The guild is already operating, and on an SCA-wide scale. The badge stays the same as well, so if you need us, just ask for a Chirurgeon. It’s my pleasure to serve as Kingdom Guildmistress.
If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
