What if I want a medical examination?
Medical Examinations for Fitness to Dive
The current self declaration process has become an established system with the full support of the UK Diving Medical Committee (UKDMC). For those divers that could not self declare, the system has worked well.
Some members may still wish to obtain a medical examination, in addition to the mandatory self declaration process – for their own peace of mind. Only a UKDMC referee however can endorse a UKDMC ‘fitness to dive’ certificate.
There are two options for those that want a medical examination:
- A medical examination from their own GP (in addition to the mandatory self declaration process)
- A medical examination from a UKDMC referee
- and a UKDMC ‘fitness to dive’ certificate can be issued.
