Recreation Diver Medicals Telephone Consultation booking

A Recreational Diver Medical is not available to book direct and is available to UK SCUBA recreational divers only.

Please follow this process:

Book your Diving Doctor telephone consultation below. You will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to proceed. Please complete the following SELF DECLARATION MEDICAL FORM ahead of your consultation appointment.

On completion of your telephone consultation you will either be signed off remotely by one of our diving doctors or be informed that you will require a face to face Recreational Diver Medical and the process for booking this.

Please note if you are aged over 60, or have a significant medical condition including asthma, high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes, then you will need an in-person sports diver medical. (If you would not wish to come to DDRC in Plymouth for this, then you may find a diving doctor closer to you via the following link:

If after your telephone consultation the Doctor is able to sign you off remotely, then there is a £20 fee for completing the forms.

Please note we are NOT able to give advice or sign medical forms for free-diving.

Fitness to Dive advice is not funded by the NHS.
