UK Club PEME 2014
The Pre-Employment Medical Examination (PEME) programme is the leading loss prevention initiative within the UK P&I Club. Clinics, which are approved under the programme, are held accountable to both the Club and Members for their performance.
The scheme is designed to protect shipowners from claims arising from medical conditions existing prior to employment, and to provide crew with a first rate health check before going to sea. This programme is the most extensive and inclusive system available in the industry and has become a key element in the Club's loss prevention scheme.

PEME advice: Hypertension
Hypertension is currently the second most frequent reason for PEME failure and the illness alone represents 8% of all unfit decisions. Hypertension is a constant cause of crew illness incidents and can lead to heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and chronic kidney disease. In 2014 it was estimated that Hypertension cost the NHS in the UK over £2 Billion in health care services and medications.
The UK Club is delighted to be a signatory on the Neptune Declaration on Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change.
