Every offshore worker must undergo and pass a medical examination which classifies them as medically fit to work in the offshore environment. Only physicians who are approved by the Oil & Gas UK Health Advisory Committee (UKOOA), can carry out the examination.
Here at Heathrow Medical, we have a team of fully qualified doctors able to perform Oil & Gas UK (formerly known as UKOOA) Medicals including EBS in-water training medicals.
Important note: please ensure you bring photo identification with you to your appointment. This will need to be produced at the time of your medical examination.
Upon completion of your examination, you will be provided with an Offshore Medical Certificate. The Offshore Medical Certificate is only valid for a limited time, and you need to renew it to continue working offshore. Renewals as from 1st January 2007, are required every 2 years irrespective of your age.
