Specialist medical solutions for private individuals and organisations.


‘Your expectations exceeded’

Templar Medical’s Director, Dr David Carey, is a consultant doctor and qualified practicing barrister, with a background in the military. His standards are exacting and because his background is military so is his ethos and that of Templar Medical. Put simply we’re here to deliver.

You can expect: a deep, specialist knowledge; a personal and personable approach; absolute professionalism; enough time set aside to deal with your case; and a frank, straight-talking approach.

You’ll be dealing with David directly at consultant level. However, since Templar Medical has access to a number of affiliate consultants (for example, in cardiology, ophthalmology or ENT) we can bring these specialists ‘on-board’ should their expertise help your particular situation.


Specialist medicals

All specialist medicals are conducted by Dr Carey who is a professional pilot, experienced diver, MSA qualified driver and has worked in the off-shore industry. So we understand your job-role.

We also appreciate that individuals can be anxious regarding their medical and for that reason we ensure that the your medical is conducted in a peaceful and comfortable environment. You will never be kept waiting in a waiting room, and we’re generous with our time so you won’t feel you're being ‘processed’.

Aviation Medicals – from Class 1 (professional commercial pilots) and Class 2 (private pilots) to LAPL, Air Traffic Control and Cabin Crew.

Diving Medicals – from HSE Diving at Work Medicals conducted by an HSE AMED doctor, to recreational Suba Diving medicals by a medical referee on the UK Diving Medical Committee.

OGUK Medicals – from standard OGUK medicals to fit to train EBS medicals, and when required additional services such as Chester Fitness Testing, and Spirometry.




David is a qualified barrister (Inner Temple) with a Full Practicing Certificate. He has advised clients and represented them in a range of areas from Personal Injury (PI) to complex employment matters  such as in Aviation and Diving. 

David is Public Access (PA) qualified and can therefore represent clients without the need for a solicitor. David works with a progressive set of chambers (Clerksroom) and clients can ask for him by name.

Expert Witness

David receives instructions from solicitors regarding Non-Freezing Cold Injury (NFCI), Aviation Medicine and general military medical claims. Due to his background in military occupational medicine David is well placed to advise with regard to the complexities of the military medical process from medical grading to medical boards.

David also has a degree in law (LLB) and is a qualified practicing Barrister, having been called to the Bar in 2016. Therefore he understands the importance of CPR Part 35 compliant reports, and can liaise with solicitors and barristers ‘on their level’. He is also CUBS qualified and a member of the EWI.


David trained in mediation with the ADRg and his mediation skill was recognised when he won the UK Best Mediation Advocate in 2016, against solicitors and barristers from various firms and chambers.


Occupational health

Occupational health services for many of the UK’s best-known businesses and for many of the least known SMEs.

Templar Medical offers a full range of occupational health services, and the entire process is overseen by a Consultant Physician in Occupational Medicine.

Our service is created to serve your needs, not ours. Therefore rather than try to apply a generic ‘catch-all’ fix we create a bespoke solution to meet the needs of a particular employer and their employees. As such, that solution is robust and stands up to scrutiny from regulators such as the HSE or CQC.

Over the years, we’ve handled a wide and sometimes surprising mix of assignments. Typically, we’ll be called upon to conduct medical assessments, advise on sickness absence, manage complex cases, and develop health-related policies.

Whatever your requirements contact us. You’ll be surprised how cost-effective our tailor-made solutions are compared to those offered by larger providers.

David qualified as a barrister and was called to The Bar in 2016 and holds a full practicing certificate. He is also a qualified mediator.

He then returned to the Royal Navy 2005 to combine his background in Aviation and Medicine as a consultant before finally leaving the military in 2012 as a Surgeon Commander. During those 25 years he served both ashore and afloat, ranging from operational tours with the British Army to embarkation with Royal Naval Air Squadrons on aircraft carriers.

David Carey is extremely efficient and professional when it comes to renewing my international Motorsport Licence each year. I would highly recommend using him for any racing licence medical needs."
