Coronavrirus COVID 19- Updated 01/04/2020

The CAA have permitted a 6 month extension to mainly EASA Class 1/3 Licenses. The FAA are extending until 30 June 2020. 

Our clinic is still operational but will comply with the restrictions below so if you still need your medical then please email us.

We have now deactivated our online booking system in order to comply with national restrictions to limit Coronavirus transmission. Your medical is still on, but you may be contacted to adjust the timing in order to comply with social distancing.

If you would like to book an appointment then please email and title your email “BOOK ME AN APPOINTMENT,” leave a contact telephone number and a member of the team will get back to you. This is to minimize any client to client contact.

We also ask our clients to comply with restrictions by:

- Completing paperwork prior to the appointment to minimize time spent in the clinic area

- Encourage social distancing

- Do not attend your appointment if you have symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks or should currently be isolating yourself. This applies to High Risk Groups who should be isolating for 3 months.

- Be not afraid if your clinician has to use PPE during the consultation. 

The CAA have recommend that medicals are prioritized on clients who are workers vital to the national infrastructure (e.g. ATCO, Cargo and Emergency Services aircrew.) If you are one of these workers and you are unable to book an appointment with us online then please email us at or call us on 01202 487887 and one of the medical team will make themselves available at a time hopefully suitable for you to get your medical done. 

Please keep checking our website for up to date information as the national situation changes on a day to day basis

We wish all our clients well and to stay safe.

Dr. Duane O'Reilly, Dr. Hugh Cummin, Dr. Angus Hickish and Nurse Tufty

Advance Notice -Retirement of Dr Reg Odbert from Aviation Medical Practice on 31 Dec 2019

I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to all aircrew and medical colleagues whom I have known throughout my involvement in aviation medicine during the past 40 years.

I have been fortunate to work with many talented people and to enjoy learning of your varied interesting experiences, and sometimes your difficulties and illnesses too.

On a personal note, I shall miss meeting pilots and ATCOs and catching up with the events in your lives. I will also miss my colleagues, but I am absolutely confident that the team at Aviation Medicals Wessex will always do their very best to provide you with an excellent service.

I feel that the time has come for me to withdraw from Aviation Practice and as I leave AMW at the end of the year I wish everyone on-going success and happiness in 2020 and beyond……



The doctors at AMW are continuing to perform EASA Medicals for the UK CAA and other European Licencing Authorities after Britain leaves the EU on 31 January 2020. Just tell us which European Country LA you would like your medical information submitted to during your consultation with us.
