Web page for UK Hyperbaric Facilities has been changed

The web page for UK Hyperbaric Facilities has been altered to reflect new emergency information.

Emergency Calls


The centre in Aberdeen co-ordinates the treatment of Diving Emergencies in Scotland. This is an NHS service for which no charge is made to the patient. The single point of contact is now 0845 408 6008 stating that the call is a Diving Emergency. The service has chambers in Dunstaffnage, Aberdeen, Millport and Stromness.

Information about the National Health Service provision for diving related illness in Scotland is on at http://www.sdm.scot.nhs.uk/index.htm .

Polish Webpage changed

Dear Dr Campbell,

Thank you for posting my address and telephone on your page within the Polish Diving Doctors section, two years back. I would like to actualize the information since I have changed jobs and moved into private practice only. I also have started a medical-diving web page in Polish language.

www.lekarznurkowy.pl is a Polish language medical page for divers I have created recently. "Lekarz nurkowy" means in Polish "diving doctor". It is nowhere near your page but one has to start somewhere :-). There is of course a link there to www.scuba-doc.com

My new coordinates:

Marcin Ajewski MD PhD
MedAire Medical Practice

Best regards,
Marcin Ajewski
