Scottish Diving Medicine provide information about diving accidents and illnesses. They recommend contacting them if you have a dive accident in Scotland because they are in touch with the four recompression chambers there. They recommend that you call 0845 408 6008 and ask for the on-call hyperbaric consultant.

Alternatively, call Divers Alert Network (DAN) Europe's hotline in Zurich +41.1.14 14

Medical advice for divers is available from Ernest S. Campbell, MD, FCAS, a former surgeon and diver, at Diving Medical Online
