Diving Medicals

A background in Royal Navy Diving

David was the Senior Medical Officer (SMO) Diving for the Royal Navy. In that role he assessed the fitness of divers ranging from Mine Clearance Divers (MDC) to Special Forces (SBS). He presented lectures on the Undersea Medicine Course at the Institute of Naval Medicine (INM), instructed and examined diver medics at the Defence Diving School, provided medical input into dive training and equipment trials, and was A Duty Diving Medical Officer (DDMO) covering diving emergencies worldwide for both military and civilian divers.

David is an HSE Approved Medical Examiner of Divers (AMED) for commercial divers and sits on the UK Diving Medical Committee (UKDMC) as a medical referee for divers.


David has been a pleasure to work with to get me back in the water.
Since I am only a hobby diver his knowledge of diving has re-assured me .
I would be happy to recommend him to anyone.”

Sue Povall, Scuba-diver

David offers a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in which medicals are carried. He has the ability to instil great confidence in his thorough approach, but at the same time put you completely at ease. His diving medicine knowledge is clearly first rate, and everything is explained in a straightforward, open way and sage advice is offered. I will be booking next year’s medical examination with Templar Medical.”
