Fitness to dive
Please note that for all in water training, you will need to complete the PADI Medical Form. If you answer “Yes” to any question on page 1 of this form, you will need to obtain and bring a copy of a physician’s approval to dive, which is found on page 2 of the form. Further information for the physician is found from page 3 onwards.

If you have any questions contact your local dive centre or your General Practitioner, who should be able to provide some advice or guidance.  Should you wish to see a diving specialist doctor, your dive centre should be able to recommend one.  We recommend Mark Downs, whose details can be found at http://www.scuba4fun.org.uk/index.html
