Oil & Gas Medical
We provide the medical assessments required by the Oil & Gas industry in the UK to ensure an individual’s fitness to work within the special environment of this industry is met as outlined by Oil & Gas UK (OGUK).
If required, in addition to the OGUK Medical, an assessment can be performed regarding the fitness to undertake in-water training with an emergency breathing equipment, a so called passenger short term air supply system (PSTASS), in accordance with the Oil & Gas UK guideline, and a respective certificate can be issued without a further fee.
The clinic does not currently offer shoulder measurement for off-shore workers, but provides onsite vaccinations for personnel working overseas in countries around the world, as well as other additional services such as drugs and alcohol testing upon request.
We are a SEQOHS accredited private clinic
