Dr Miles Meyrick

Experience/Interests:

I graduated from Imperial College, University of London at St Mary’s Hospital, UK in 1988 and have worked as a GP in Australia since 2001. 

At the moment I am only available on Saturday mornings since I work full time for the Australian Defence Force. 

I have particular interests in

  • men’s health, in particular male specific sexual health and wellness

  • musculoskeletal and sports medicine

  • lifestyle modification and metabolic conditions, especially diabetes type 2

  • preventive medicine

  • health and well being

  • DVA related medicals and certification

I am a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) and I am approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to perform medical examinations which meet the provisions of the Civil Aviation Act 1988, the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 and the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1988, including

  • personally examining applicants requiring medical certification

  • discussing the applicant’s medical history and medical record during the course of the medical examination

  • referring applicants for follow-up testing when required

  • sending relevant information to CASA within a reasonable period of time (usually not more than 14 days after the examination)

  • responding to questions from applicants about their illness/medical conditions

  • issuing certificates for fitness to return to flying

 

Presently, CASA medical certification does take two separate visits to the practice.  The first during the week on a day that suits you to have the preliminary investigations performed by our practice nurse and then a return on Saturday to see myself for the examination, assessment and liaison with CASA.
