Medical Declaration

Question

I approached my GP to get my medical declaration completed, however was informed they did not do this and I would need to "go private". 

Armed with this news I researched local private medical practices, but to no avail. No-one seems to be able to assist. Surely I am not alone in this? There are loads of people who do skydiving and parachuting, and they must get their medical declarations completed somewhere? 

I live in Central Scotland, near Edinburgh. Can anyone suggest a GP or private practise I could use?

May I suggest that you visit a doctor who examines pilots for the Civil Aviation Authority?

I have sent several aspiring tandem instructors to the same doctors who do Transport Canada medicals for pilots, but I told them not to bother with the paperwork needed to get an official aviation medical certificate. Both Strong Enterprises and I were satisfied with a doctor's note saying that the TI was healthy enough to skydive.

You will probably still have to pay out of your own pocket.

There's a guy in Newcastle but I can't remember his name. Someone on Facebook might be able to help you.

If it's for BPA the medical declaration now allows for self-certification, subject to certain conditions which are stipulated on the document. e.g. no surgery in last last xx years. You can view/download from the BPA website. This is of course for fun jumpers only - I'm not sure what type of certificate tandem instructors etc have to provide.
