Welcome to DDRC

DDRC Healthcare is a UK registered charity, specialising in diving and hyperbaric medicine, based at the Hyperbaric Medical Centre,Plymouth Science Park, Research Way,Plymouth, Devon PL6 8BU Tel +44(0)1752 209999. Directions can be found here.

We provide hyperbaric treatment & advice, education & training, and research. We promote, provide and work to increase the availability of high quality, cost effective, hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy.

Hyperbaric medicine is used to treat a wide range of conditions; from divers with decompression illness to people with foot ulcers caused by diabetes, and from carbon monoxide poisoning to hard-to-heal wounds.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy involves breathing 100% oxygen, whilst under pressure in a hyperbaric chamber. This combination of increased pressure and increased oxygen has many effects from increasing the amount of oxygen available to the body tissues to be able to carry out vital functions, to compressing bubbles caused by decompression illness (DCI). 

Our two trading subsidiaries, DDRC Professional Services and Plymouth Wound Care, deliver services including medicals, training and specialised wound care. Any income generated is gifted to DDRC Healthcare to support our charitable work.
