For Diving Chamber Doctors

If you have a patient who suits the listed criteria and you would like to refer for HBOT and possibly use the DCTT to fund the treatment, then please:
  1. See the patient that has been referred to you (It is customary not to charge for HBOT assessment)
  2. Make sure that HBOT is a suitable treatment
  3. Make an assessment as to how many treatments might be needed
  4. Scan your notes along with the initial referral letter to you and send them to us via the contact form.
  5. The DCTT will then contact the patient directly to discuss funding for their treatment
  6. If The DCTT is able to fund, we will contact both you and the patient with the "go-ahead"
  7. Could you then arrange with the patient as to when the first treatment will be
  8. If more treatments are needed than the DCTT has initially agreed to fund, then send us another "Case of Need" letter and we will go to step 5 above again
  9. We would be grateful for a copy of your final discharge summary that you send to the initial referring consultant
