I think this has to be an ML5 registered Dr, I know when I spoke to Medacs they said it was dead mans shoes.

Just renewed mine and printed ML5 off web and then took to local GP , left it for her to do but called in to do blood pressure and colour blind test. So your own GP should do it and tick all boxes before signing forms and also the ML5 certificate. Costs vary from GP surgeries

always done ML5 at own doctor.
ENG1 has to be approved doctor.
ENG! allegedly stricter according to local opinion.
In reality ML5 with your own doctor is mainly history and he knows more about you than you do. ENG1 and approved doctor (who the local skippers said was a B***** and red stamped folk) was in my opinion less strict as he didnt know the applicants and had no records for them.

If you still have your Class 1 Aviation medical, you can use that. Get some prices, sometimes the charge for a Class 1 is less than that for an ML5!
I can give you some names for Aviation Medicals or look them up online

GO to your GP

Your GP can do it I agree with C2 and wavelength Avoid Eng I doctors at all costs. I need an ENG ! for working abroad butcan work in the UK on an ML5

My GP signs my ML5 off for 5 years (It's the only tyime he sees me fortunately)
then about three months Later I go for an ENG1 and the approved doctor tells me I'm 6 stone overweight and THAT I've got about 12 days to live. That BS has been going on for about 12 years now.

Anybody in their right mind can seee I'm only 50kg overweight

PS If your using any medical (your Class1 maybe) to get a commercial endorsement on a Powerboat ticket it has to be less than three months old

One of the reasons the commercial medical is so strict is no company wants to have a death or medivac ob board ship registered as an LTI

ENG1 was what I was thinking of.

Alas I let the Aviation medical expire in September along with all the ratings.....I think I'd need another ECG nowanyway so it all just gets daft at that point cost wise.

Put a call in to my GP who is very unsure .. so I have emailed the form to her to 'consider' explaining its mostly yes/no answers with a small amount of time for her to do blood pressure etc.

Waiting for a call back.

Thanks for all the advice - hopefuly will get sorted soon.

Pete
