Oil & Gas Medicals at Glasgow Medical Rooms
Anybody working offshore in Norwegian or UK waters is required to have an Oil & Gas UK Medical (OGUK Medical) Certificate. Glasgow Medical Rooms is on the Oil & Gas UK Register of Examining Doctors.
OGUK medical certificates have been recognised for use within Norwegian waters since 2013 and certificates are valid for two years, unless you have a medical reason for a restriction. You can renew your OGUK medical certificate with us by making an appointment in advance. Glasgow Medical Rooms will provide you with your certificate at the end of your appointment.
The OPITO BOSIET, FOET and HUET Courses are each changing and will now include in-water training with the CA-EBS. This new element requires additional medical tests for delegates, which will be captured via a “Fit to Train” certificate.
Please advise us when booking the appointment that it is for an OGUK medical examination.

Fit to Train Certificate
The OPITO BOSIET, FOET and HUET Courses are both changing and will now include in-water training with the CA-EBS. This new element requires additional medical tests for delegates, which will be captured via a “Fit to Train” certificate.
This needs to be completed before you can partake in the BOSIET, FOET or HUET Courses. Delegates will need to complete a questionnaire asking about respiratory, ear, nose and throat checks and a lung health assessment which will be assessed in a face-to-face medical assessment with an OGUK Examining Private GP.
This OGUK medical assessment will be offered stand-alone or combined with the Oil & Gas UK Medical.
I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.Linnea Blair
“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”Mrs Johnston
We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”Mrs Crawford
“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”GMK Group
I am Business Professional with a very busy international travel schedule. On a monthly basis I can typically travel from North / Central / South America to Asia and various locations throughout Europe. I found it very difficult to locate a medical facility that understood my situation. After much research I found the perfect place at Glasgow Medical RoomsBrian Running
Dr. Shelia was outstanding in understanding my situation. Outwith her medical expertise, she clearly understood the challenges I faced with my demanding travel schedule and the need to have a medical facility that was flexible to my needs.
In addition, the entire team that works at Glasgow Medical Rooms are sincere, kind, professional and their communication is second to none.
A special mention to the Practice Manager, Donna McMillan who leads by example, resulting what appears to be a flawless Practice.
