    Medicals - Fitness to Dive telephone consultation
    • £5.00

Summary

We run a weekly telephone consultation clinic with one of our dive doctors. This is a charitable service but we ask for a contribution of £5 to help keep the service running.

Description

We are happy to discuss most subjects related to your health and diving but may need to refer you for a medical either at DDRC Healthcare or another centre convenient to you for a face to face recreational dive medical.

We will not be able to answer general medical questions which may be more appropriate for your GP/A+E.

For simple problems it may be possible to complete an 'endorsement of self declaration' which means that you may not need a face to face medical.  However, this depends on the medical problem.

Prerequisites

Once you have booked please email either a completed:

PADI form

https://www.padi.com/sites/default/files/documents/padi-courses/2.1.5%20rstc%20medstate%20v201.pdf

BSAC form

https://www.bsac.com/document/medical-referee-form-2016/

Please send documents to ftd@ddrc.org

If the doctor does not have one of these forms they will need to rebook your appointment.

This service is only available to UK based divers: for advice in other countries please speak to your national diving association or training organisation.
