Scuba Diver Medical Certificates
So, you’re going Scuba diving? Lucky you! But don’t forget, some Scuba courses & schools require a Fitness to Dive Medical Certificate, before divers take the plunge.
Some groups, such as the Professional Association of Diving Instructor (PADI) have a fairly straight-forward form, which can be completed by our London GPs to declare the applicant Fit to Dive.
If you are under 40 you would require a 15 minute appointment which start from just £55.
If you are over 40 you would require a 30 minute appointment with an ECG which start from £120.
Other scuba schools have more extensive forms, requiring some or all of the following:
- Chest X-Ray*
- Spirometry – £20
- Extensive blood analysis
- Urinalysis – £5
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
Any medical forms requiring the above tests will likely require a 30-minute appointment.
For any medical exams requiring a chest x-ray, the GP will provide a referral to our partner clinic nearby who are able to provide x-rays costing £65.
The certificate can only be issued once all of the investigations are completed and deemed satisfactory.
Simply book in online for a 15 or 30-minute GP consultation, or give us a call or email for more information.
A 15-minute medical exam & certificate starts from just £55.
