Intrusive Cast Medicals

By Jacob Knapper
Intrusive Cast Medicals

Hi all,

I know this has been mentioned on the PMA before but we are having another pass as we are in conversations with Cathy Sweet at Equity about the increasing use of intrusive cast medicals (specifically ECG, blood and urine tests on top of the standard medical), especially for actors deemed ‘essential elements’ on a production.

If anyone has any examples of this creeping practice it would be great if everyone could send them to Cathy (or us to forward) – she is going to raise this with PACT as this needs to be nipped in the bud!

Many thanks,

Jacob
