Skydiving Medical Certificate (Solo or Tandem)

If you are intending to SkyDive (whether this is solo or tandem in a group) you would require a medical to ensure that you are safe enough to make the jump. Here at Cherries Medical Clinic we can help with this. 

For Solo Jumps:- Medical Form 115d required.

For Tandem Jumps:- Medical Form 115b required.

You would require a medical certificate especially for the following conditions that are mentioned:-

(a) Hypertension. 

(b) Heart Disease

(c) Lung Disease such as Asthma or COPD. 

(d) Epilepsy/Seizures.

(f) Recurrent blackouts. 

(g) A neurological condition such as brain tumour, hydrocephalus, multiple sclerosis or demyelinating disorders. 

(h) Previous significant head injury. 

(i) Mental Illness +/- Substance Misuse

The above list isn't exhaustive but if you have a condition that can render your jump to be a risk, then we would advise you to liaise with us here at Cherries Medical Clinic. 

At the time of appointment, please remember to bring the following:-

(a) A digital or physical copy of your GP records i.e. Patient Access, NHS App or a physical summary record. 

(b) Medication List (if any).

(c) Photo ID in the form of passport or driving license.

(e) Medical Form 115b (Tandem) or Medical Form 115d (Solo) depending on the type of jump that you would be doing.
