Sport Diving Medicals

These can be done by your usual doctor at Barrington Medical Centre for healthy young people. (With the exception of Dr Davies),

They should be done before you start your dive course because a number of people are recommended not to dive.

Ring for an appointment and clearly state that you want a Sport Diving Medical because you will need a nurse's appointment and a doctor's appointment.

  • You will need to allow about 45-60 minutes and be prepared to provide a urine sample.
  • The medical involves a questionnaire, hearing test, vision test, breathing test, urine test, blood pressure and physical examination.
  • People over 50 years old and/or smokers will need a spirometry.  Note a longer appointment and extra charges apply.


If you have any long term disorders such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes or neurological disorders, you will need a more specialised assessment.

These can be done by Dr Lucinda Whiteley at Rolleston Medical Centre. Phone 03 347 8848.
