Diving accident helpline
Starting on 3 January 2013 Plymouth UK based hyperbaric medicine charity DDRC takes over the staffing of the British Hyperbaric Association’s (BHA) National Diving Accident Helpline on 07831 151 523.
This emergency number is used nationally and internationally by divers, dive clubs, dive centres, the Coastguard, Emergency Departments, GPs and members of the public to gain assistance in emergency situations where decompression illness or a hyperbaric medical emergency such as carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected.
DDRC will be taking over from the Institute of Naval Medicine which has run the helpline for the BHA for many years. Changes in military requirements mean that the Royal Navy no longer feels it can provide the logistical capability to continue this valued expert service.
The BHA National Diving Accident Helpline will be staffed by the DDRC’s specialist diving and hyperbaric doctors, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
