Dr Doug Watts

Medical Director

Doug Watts joined DDRC in 2017 as a Senior Doctor. He is a GP and prior to joining DDRC worked for the Royal Marines as a Civilian GP.

He’s taken quite a bit of time out of the conventional career path: cycling across the Middle East, sailing across the Atlantic, working in Sierra Leone and spending many months in the jungle and up mountains on expeditions.

During this time he completed his PADI Divemaster and worked as a medic on dive expeditions in Central America.

Doug is an Approved Doctor (AD) for the MCA, Approved Medical Examiner of Divers (AMED) for the HSE, a UKDMC Sport diver Referee and an OGUK doctor.
