Hi all,

Not really sure if this is the correct place to put this as it's part scam part mis-information! Mods if you could oblige me and move it if I'm in the wrong section!

We've started to notice increasing numbers of people supplying Medicals which state that they are UKOOA (now OGUK btw) when they aren't. Unfortunately our friends in the worldwide medical services appear to be labouring under the impression that anyone can provide you with an OGUK medical certificate (and in some cases Norwegian ones too).

Please don't part with your cash until you've checked out their details via the Oil & Gas UK website which allows you to search for your nearest Registered Doctor and gives you full details. ALL valid medicals should state the individual Doctor's OGUK PIN clearly and should last for only 2 years no matter what your age is.

If you're still unsure or can't find the person who issued your medical on this list then please contact OGUK direct and they'll be able to assist. Please note that there isn't a similar list that I can find for those able to provide a Norwegian Health Certificate but if you ask when calling to book an appointment they should be able to tell you.

Thanks for that and for providing a link to enable people to find genuine OGUK medical practitioners.

As for the location of the post.... Danger zone works for me, as highlighting it here may save people some grief, but I will add a copy to the [url=]Offshore Medicals[/url] section as well.

The link is only for OGUK doctors in the UK. There are OGUK doctors all over the world.

Can anyone supply a link for internationally available doctors as well?

"The link is only for OGUK doctors in the UK"......incorrect.
If a city has a Registered Doctor the city should be listed.

True, the first on the list is Aberdeen, the second is Abu Dhabi! it IS a list worldwide.

The old offshore medical standard was quoted as UKOOA
The current standard is quoted as OGUK

Hi All,

Actually I can't find the person who issued my medical on this list, but I'm sure was there two years ago.
My UKOOA medical it's going to expire the next year.
Do you guys suggest me to get the new one anyway?

Cheers.
Quote
I would suggest there is no reason to renew your medical until the current UKOOA one has expired. That is assuming it was issued by a practitioner registered with UKOOA at the time. Might be worth checking up on.
Quote
My apologies James.

Good to see my doctor is there as well.
Quote
Just to add to this - the database can be a little picky, if you don't find your Dr in there at first try searching their name, practice etc.

Normally the Docs are listed as Dr (First Initial) Surname if that helps - it seems to only want to search on an exact format Rolling Eyes
