The London Hyperbaric Chamber is Londons leading medical facility with a modern multiplace recompression
chamber for diving accidents. The East of England Hyperbaric Unit is also part of the DES-UK group with a recompression chamber located in Great Yarmouth which is staffed by a highly qualified team. Divers Emergency Service provides 24/7, confidential medical advice and NHS funded treatment to professional and recreational SCUBA divers suffering from decompression illness (treatment for the bends or DCI).
DCI Treatment and More
Both our chambers provide a one-stop-shop for medical advice, all diving medicals, treatment for DCI, dry dives (chamber dives) and educational courses. Our team consists of qualified, competent and diver-friendly professionals. All supervisors and most nurses and doctors are active divers.
This website includes information about decompression illness, avoiding it, symptoms and treatment of the bends. You can also browse all the courses, book a medical or a dry dive and learn about our team. We have an active community and encourage you to join our facebook page, follow us on Twitter and read our blog, all of which will allow you to chat directly to us and post your comments and questions.
