Medical Facilities

All the major hotels have a doctor on staff or on call. So the reception of your hotel can help.

Remember that all medical services over here have to be paid for (there is no NHS). For more serious matters there is a hospital as well as a private medical centre.

For diving related facilities there are now 2 recompression chambers in Sharm.
The original one which was donated by USAID is still the most popular (all divers with the College are asked to donate 1 Euro per day towards the up keep of this chamber).
If you don’t want to, then mention this to the counter and these few Euros will be removed from your bill.
Dr Adel Tahir who runs this chamber is a well known and respected doctor in the area.

The other chamber is situated in the hospital and is run under the Ministry of Health.

A treatment in the chamber is about US$ 750 per hour (so check your diving insurance and dive safely !!).
