UK CAA launches review of its medical services

April 7, 2014

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced a review of the medical services it provides.

The study will look at all aspects of the work of the CAA’s Medical Department to ensure UK pilots and air traffic controllers are receiving the most suitable and efficient service possible.

The review will seek the opinions of key stakeholder groups with a full formal public consultation to follow later in the year on any proposals that emerge.

The CAA’s Medical Department currently oversees the medical certification process for 16,000 commercial and 30,000 private pilots holding UK issued European Aviation Safety Agency licences as well as the medical certificates for air traffic controllers. The Department offers advice on all medical matters relating to civil aviation; engages with other national regulators on aero medical policy and legislation; and evaluates the latest relevant medical research. It also operates an Aeromedical Centre at the CAA’s Gatwick headquarters to provide initial medical examinations for trainee commercial pilots.

Details of the consultation following the completion of the review will be published in due course.
