First of all we require you to complete a UK Sport Diver Medical Form which you can download here. This is to ensure you are fit to dive. If you have any doubts, you may need to have a medical. This entails getting your GP or other doctor to complete a Sport Diving Medical Form - available from Swale Divers.
