Dear Madam or Sir
I'm joing a Cambridge Scuba Diving club I need to be examined by an Medical Referee to see if I'm physically & mentally fit to do scuba diving, My Medical Referee said he needed information from my GP about my Disability. 
Unfortunately I do not know what my Learning Disability is,
I would like to ask do you know or find a place where I can be assessed to find out what my Disability is please?
Thank you for your kind attention
Please give me a reply as soon as possible

Dear Dr Rick
Thank you for answering my questions,
I'm 37 years old,
I live in Cambridge Endgland UK,
I wasn't told what my disability is, all I was told I am a slow learner which isn't very useful, I went to a school for people with disability. At a test I was told in part my disability is dyslexia which may be true but I don't really know
Thank you for your kind attention
Please give me a reply as soon as possible
Sincerely Yours

The best place to get this information is from your GP.

I'm sure she would be happy to send an email (or a letter) to your Medical Referee so you can start SCUBA training.

Make sense to you?
