Extreme Sports & Pilot Licence Medical Assessments

Posted on August 30th, 2023

Albany Surgery are not able to provide Pilot licence medical assessments or GP letters for the participation in extreme sports such as marathons, diving, skydiving, parachuting, bungee jumping etc.

This is a private service and is above the standard NHS requirements for our practice, therefore our GP’s have collectively decided that we can unfortunately no longer provide this service to our patients due to the medical legal implications and risk involved. Should a GP make the incorrect decision regarding a patient’s health/ability to fulfil what is required for a pilot licence/extreme sport, the GP in question would not be covered by medical indemnity.

We are able to provide you with a copy of your full medical history free of charge. This information can also be accessed online via our Patient Online Service. Please contact the surgery for further details on how to register.

Alternatively, you may wish to contact a private medical assessment provider.

Please contact the Aviation Authority or event organiser for further advice.
