As of now, please could anyone who comes along to saltFree bring the attached Medical Form with you. If you answer NO to all the questions, you do not have to have it signed by a doctor. If you have any YES's you will need a physician's signature.

If you already have a different medical and it's less than a year old, that is fine, please bring a copy.

Do bear in mind that for the UK Nationals in May, you will all need a doctors signature.

Thanks
Sam

Cost of a freediving medical???

I spoke to my GP today regarding a medical check for freediving. He was quite happy to do one but wanted £75. I am keen to get a thorough examination but this seems a bit excessive?

I was wondering if this is about the going rate or if there is anywhere I could get this done cheaper.

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Matt

Hi Justin

Shouldn't be too long before spearfishing starts again. The earliest I have caught fish is early May. I think the vis may have been ok recently as there has been very little surf but I dont think the fish turn up 'till a bit later (and its far too cold for me). Ill give you a call as soon as it looks good.

I am still hoping to get a sit on Kayak for the summer similar to yours so might need some advice there.

I need a medical for Cyprus and salt free. It would be great if you could help me out with this - not too bothered about the colonoscopy though!

Cheers

Matt

Matt,

If you want a medical, this should not be a major problem. I have a clinic at Morriston on Wednesday mornings, however the next one is not until 31 march,as Iam on call and going away for a course. Alternatively if you phone my secretary on 704059 I can try and fit you in some time this week. I presume all you need is a basic examination/Blood pressure etc...if you need blood tests etc... then it gets a bit more complicated.

Let us know..

Justin
