Question
Posted : October 16, 2006
My query follows on from MaryCBerry's. How do I find a 'dive doctor' in my area and obtain a 'suitability to dive medical assessment'?
Have been diabetic for past 34 years, controlled by insulin injections and diet. Never dived before, but am looking to learn this winter in Red Sea or Phuket.

Then its best you see a dive doc before you book to make sure you will be fit to dive.
To make an appointment, please call 02078064028.
However lines do get busy in the morning so afternoon is the best time to
call.
Alternatively you can make an appointment request online:

and you will recieve a response that working day.
And to find our location please look here:

Tube is the easiest way of getting here, as we are 30 seconds walk.
Yours
