With effect from 1 October 2021, the charges for any diver (recreational or commercial) requiring the use of the hyperbaric chamber will be as follows:
- Attendance to the Emergency Department - charge applicable to the time and day presenting PLUS
- Category Charge of Critical (£340) PLUS
- An hourly rate for use of the chamber and doctor services of £320 per hour.
This is the first increase in charges since they were last reviewed in June 2018. The increase in the hourly rate reflects the increase in costs of providing this service.
The Chamber is available to all divers intending to dive within the Bailiwick's 12-mile limit.
In the event that any diver is suspected of suffering from decompressions illness, contact should be made with the Emergency Department of the hospital by calling +44 1481 220000 or calling 999 for emergency assistance.
