About DDRC Healthcare:
We are a charity operating the Hyperbaric Medical Centre adjacent to Derriford Hospital, in Plymouth Science Park. We are a global centre of excellence for diving and hyperbaric medicine, and run a 24/7 emergency on-call team to treat people requiring hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy.
As a not-for-profit organisation we provide treatment and advice, education and training, and research and consultancy.
We are best known for our support to the diving community, however HBO can be used to treat many conditions including tissue damage from radiation therapy, carbon monoxide poisoning, hard-to-heal wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, and necrotising fasciitis.
Our trading subsidiaries provide medical examinations and medical / first aid training, primarily to the diving, maritime, offshore and medical sectors. We also deliver wound care management services using our specialised Tissue Viability Nurses.
If you get the chance to visit us at our facility, please do, it is a truly fascinating place and people are always amazed by what they discover.
