Please note that as from 2016 we no longer provide ENG1 medicals or shoulder measurements.

UKOOA Medicals

We currently have 3 GP’s who are authorised to carry out UKOOA medicals: Dr Ben Davies, Dr Sarah Nicholson and Dr Janet Browell.

This is not a statutory examination unlike the ENG1, but is performed under the guidelines of Oil and Gas UK. It is essential to bring a photo ID such as a passport or vantage card.  These are done in between the surgery hours. As regular hearing tests are often requested, the practice has a suitable soundproof booth to reduce the outside noise.

A standard Offshore medical includes a hearing assessment. From January 1st 2007, all certificates will last for two years if there are no problems with the health of the employee. The UKOOA medical now covers Norwegian waters.
