All day Tuesday

I undertake all medicals from two addresses:
My home office:
5 Station Road
I prefer to be contacted initially by either e-mail (email@example.com) or my mobile: 07770 632893
I am now also able to undertake Commercial Diving Medicals, ENG1 (Seafarers Medicals) and Aviation medicals from my work at OH Services in Immingham.
This service is run through OH Services Ltd. in Immingham, and therefore they should be contacted directly to make an appointment at this venue:
35 Craik Hill Avenue
Contact details: 01469 571030
Please note that the pricing structure is different from that advertised on my web page for medicals undertaken at my home address. You should contact OH Services for a price quote.
I pride myself in being able to offer medicals at short notice and at convenient times, so please contact me to discuss your requirements.
I no longer take payment by card. Cash/Cheque for Bank Transfer only.
Medicals are slowly getting back to normal with precautions. :
All persons attending will be expected to be well and not been in contact with any high risk persons for previous 14 days, and I will screen at time of booking and again prior to medical. You will be expected to use alcohol hand gel (provided), wear a mask (provided or bring your own) and your temperature taken. I will also be wearing a mask. There will also be a Covid 19 questionnaire to fill in.Full clean will be undertaken between medicals.
There are some adaptations to the medicals, especially aerosol generating procedures and exercises test. I will explain these prior to the test.
Please do not bring anyone with you (or they can stay in your car). Do not come early, or be prepared to wait in your car until I am ready.
Medicals are in 2 sessions at the moment: Monday morning and Friday afternoon.
Some pilot medicals still have extensions until November, but it is expected there will be a rush at this time and demand will outstrip supply. Class 1 medicals will be given priority. My advice would be to not leave it to the last minute.
I have not increased my prices for over 8 years now, and costs are going up. I kept the price stable during the recession but I am now going to increase prices by £10 per medical from 1st April 2020.
I hope you understand this and will still come to see me for the best medical advice I can give.
Did you know that for certain medicals you can have you medicals done early, before the expiry date, and still keep the same expiry date. Meaning no rush to get medicals in near the expiry date.
For HSE Commercial divers: You can have you medical up to 28 days early and still keep the same expiry date.
For CAA Aviation medicals: You can have you medical up to 45 days early and still keep the same expiry date.
Pilots Submitting Reports
Commonly, you will need to submit Medical Reports about any conditions you have in a format acceptable to the CAA. This need to be in a scanned, PDF format. (not work or any other variant).
Reports submitted in a format unacceptable to the CAA will be rejected and unfortunately, rejected reports will often return to the ‘back of the queue’ causing significant delays in considering your case.
It is vital that the content and quality of submitted reports is adequate to avoid these delays (and the additional work caused to all involved).
Emailing me photos of crumpled, barely legible bits of paper is not acceptable, as is text messages with photos of documents.
I qualified at St.Bartholomews hospital in 1983.
Following my VTS training in North Wales I have been a GP in East Yorkshire since apart from a short time out when I helped set up the Midlands Diving Chamber in Rugby
I am currently Occupational Health Physician in Immingham docks and a part time locum GP. We live in Cranswick in East Yorkshire with my wife, her daughter and our dog Rufus.
My main hobbies include Sport Diving, which I have been participating in since 1982, endurance cycling and Flying from Full Sutton Airfield.
I am a member of BSAC Hull 14 (website here) and am an Advanced Instructor and Trimix trained. My main diving interests are photography, particularly in the challenging waters of the North Sea.
As a PPL holder, I fly from Full Sutton (website here) and have a share in G-BATV a PA 28. My furthest trips have been to France and Ireland. I have a Night Rating and IMC.
My other passions are a BMW 1200RT Sports tourer and a Specialised Roubraix Road bike.
After my last bike had a problem I have now upgraded to a newer BMW 1200RT. Now has cruise control - amazing relief on the right hand on long trips.
My next Charity Challenge (to be undertaken with my wife), is to explore the delights of MyanMar (Burma) October 2018.
