Diving Emergencies

If you suspect Decompression Illness (DCI) or any other diving related illness call IMMEDIATELY for assistance or advice. 

DDRC Healthcare on 01752 209999. We also answer the BHA National Diving Accident Helpline on 07831 151 523

In Scotland call 0345 408 6008.

At sea call the Marine Coastguard Agency on VHF Channel 16, DSC Channel 70 or call 999 and ask for the Coastguard. 

Any symptoms developing within 48 hours of diving may be a decompression problem and the definitive treatment is hyperbaric oxgen therapy.
