Since its creation in September 2015, the club’s pre-employment medical examination (PEME) scheme has conducted over 12,500 examinations on behalf of club members. These examinations have been fundamental in the club’s efforts to reduce the toll of preventable illness claims.
Previously, the scheme’s activities were limited to a network of 16 clinics in the Philippines. The recent expansion of the Standard Club PEME Scheme means that members and seafarers can now access enhanced PEME services in Philippines, Indonesia, India and Ukraine. This expansion increases the number of clinics to over 40, in over 20 different locations.
