HELP SAVE NHS
RECOMPRESSION CHAMBERS
POSTED: 18th January 2018

On the 15th of January 2018 NHS England launched a 30 day public consultation for the Reviewing of Hyperbaric Oxygen Services in the UK. This consultation will close on 14th of February so there is not much time to contribute your views.

One of the points of discussion is a proposal to reduce the number of UK chambers from the current 10 to a MAXIMUM of 8. Obviously a maximum of 8 could end up being LESS THAN 8.

We all hope we never need to use the services of a recompression chamber but if we do, we don’t want a long journey before treatment can start. Reducing the number of chambers would have an effect on the efficacy of treatment as the speed of the initial treatment starting is imperative to its success. This could make symptoms worse, increase total treatment costs and reduce the chances of making a full recovery.

On Tuesday this week at the British Diving Safety Group this issue was raised and now the agencies are raising the awareness and asking for your support by sending this link out. Please share this post so we can spread the word to as many people as possible. There’s a link to the relevant survey - we need to make sure that the views of divers are received.

IANTD UK will be responding to this as well as contributing to a response from the British Diving Safety Group but it is essential that individual divers also respond.

We need your help. Please complete this survey and spread this important message to all UK divers.

HELP US HIT OUR
RNLI FUNDRAISING TARGET
POSTED: 16th January 2018

We're so tantalisingly close to our target of raising £2000 for the RNLI - just £111 will get us there! With £1889.00 already raised by our fabulous Santa scuba divers during last month's Vobster Santas event, we're determined to hit our target - but we need your help.

Fancy showing the RNLI how much you appreciate what they do to keep divers safe around the coastline of the UK? Why not leave a small donation and help us hit our fundraising target? It doesn't have to be Christmas to show the RNLI some love :-)

POSTED: 19th January 2018

We would like to reassure Mr Hilter (joke for you Python fans), that we do have brown sauce, drysuits for hire and a friendly welcome. If he joins as a member, he can reserve a space in the carpark and not get up too early. When the sea improves he could come on one of our 2018 trips to Mull, Porthkerris, Norway, France, Malta or Egypt. Welkommen!
