    Yep, there is now a specialist medical exclusively for divers so they may stick their head in a bucket of water, or something like that, on their PEDA.

    The emphasis on the PEDA now actually reflects the title in that diving takes place as well as being run ragged.

    Anyone attending PEDA without a Certificate of Fitness to Dive being issued can expect to catch the next train home.
