This is one carried over from the old forum

For the UK you will need to use a UKOOA approved medical practitioner authorised to issue offshore medical certificates.
Your GP will only be able to carry out the examination if he/she is approved by UKOOA.

If they don't know what UKOOA means, then they probably are not approved to issue you with the type of cert that you require.
Note:You will not get a medical certificate if you fail the drug test!!!

A UKOOA medical is generally accepted worldwide, for offshore operations.

There is a list of UKOOA approved practitioners in the UK here:
http://www.ukooa.co.uk/issues/health/doctors.cfm
Note: It was published in 1999, so may be a bit out of date.

Aberdeen: You can get a UKOOA approved medical at:

ARK Occupational Health
Tel: 01224 584584.

Singapore: You can get a UKOOA approved medical at:

The Ming Clinic
19 Tanglin Road
Tanglin Shopping Centre
Singapore 1024
Tel: +65 235 8166

Freelance?: You will have to pay for it
Employee?: Paid for by the company

If anyone knows anywhere else please add the details by replying to this thread.

Please note that the Ming Clinic in Singapore has changed location to :-

The Ming Clinic,
1 Orchard Boulevard #04-01/02,
The Camden Medical Center,
Singapore 248649.
Tel: +65 62358166.

Also note that UKOOA is not accepted everywhere and you may require 'other' medicals at certain locations in the world.
This means it is possible to have to go through several medicals in one year instead of once every 3 years, 2 years or yearly, dependant on age. Why is this ?, well, one Doctor told me that they err... 'didn't trust' for want of a better phrase, 'outside medicals'. Maybe they had dealings with false documents, who knows ?.
Anyway it's no big deal, as long as you have a good heart, are willing to absorb a few 'X' rays and part with some blood and urine, hopefully not all at the same time though Wink

Note :-
The divers medical exams are a lot more stringent.
If you have any physical problems offshore such as a heart attack or other major complications, you are generally a long way from receiving a fully equipped medical team such as found at a General Hospital. To put it bluntly, your chances of recovery are less. Therefore, it's both in yours and the Clients best interests that you are 'fit for offshore work'.

I sent an email to Bumrangrad Hospital inquiring about UKOOA medicals and this is their reply:

Thank you for your e-mail.
Regarding your inquiry, kindly note that we do not provide particular package for UKOOA medical check-up. However, you might send a list of your requied tests to us by e-mail attachment and then we will pass to the department concern for consideration accordingly.
If we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Best Regards,
Bumrungrad International Sukontha

So now my question is what exactly is required and is there a specific form I can have the doctor fill out that will be accepted by employers for offshore work?

Dr Vatana Supromajakr at Bumrungrad Hospital, Bangkok +66 2667 1555

Nobody there is authorised to do UKOOA medicals but the Norwegian one should be accepted everywhere the UKOOA one is.
