Dr Tallent is a qualified AME (Aeromedical Examiner) and can therefore examine all commercial pilots for EU (EASA) medical certificates.  Brookdale Medical Centre is an Aero-Medical Centre, approved by the UK CAA to carry out EU (EASA) Class 1 initial and renewal/revalidation medical examinations.

Some aviation authorities require blood tests (eg lipid profile, fasting blood glucose, haemoglobin), cardiovascular risk assessment, stress ECG – we perform all of these in-house.

Note 1: Initial EU (EASA) Class 1 medical examinations are carried out on Thursdays.  The charge for an Initial Class 1 medical is £390 + VAT (Total including VAT £468.00), payable on the day of the medical by credit/debit card, cheque or cash. We appreciate a call to cancel an appointment if necessary for any reason, no cancellation fee is payable.

Note 2: Applicants wishing to obtain a UK CAA EU (EASA) Licence, who hold, or have held, a JAA or EU (EASA) medical certificate or licence issued by an aviation authority other than the UK CAA, must change their “State of Licence Issue” to the UK. Please see the CAA webpage for full details: How to obtain a UK EASA Licence if you hold a non-UK medical certificate/licence – Changing “State of Licence Issue (SOLI)”
