Marine & Offshore Medical Services

It is vital for the maritime industry that seafarers and offshore crew are fit to undertake their work without causing risk to their vessels, others at sea or to their own health.

Our dedicated marine medical centre based in Glasgow is run by independent and trusted medical professionals who understand the unique challenges faced by maritime workers and can provide the appropriate occupational health care. Carrying out medicals for shipping crews is a matter of health and safety as it reduces the risk of accidents and serious health risks onboard.

Medicals carried out include seafarers ENG1 marine medical and OGUK offshore medical (formerly known as UKOOA medicals). We offer functional capacity evaluations and test individual’s ability to perform tasks.

Our strong relationships with local hospitals allows us not only to carry out medicals and fitness assessments for seafarers inhouse but also to arrange additional tests such as X-rays and heart tests, permitting us to offer a full medical package which can be carried out in less than one day.

Travel and vaccination clinics are a major element of our day to day work and we have highly skilled medical professionals who carry out vaccinations, and can cater for the complete range of requirements.
