“He needs, first, to be in a hospital, and then to be with his family,” Clive Stafford Smith, told an Associated Press reporter.
Mr Aamer will be taken for a health check-up before returning to his home in Battersea, south London.
During his time in Guantanamo, an independent doctor who examined him warned his health had rapidly deteriorated in the past eight years.
Dr Emily Keram, a US doctor who visited him during his imprisonment, diagnosed Mr Aamer with acute post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), migraines, digestive problems, swelling, asthma and tinnitus. She recommended urgent treatment.
Mr Aamer was cleared for release from the notorious US detention centre in Cuba in 2007, but it would be a further eight years before American officials allowed his transfer.
A Saudi citizen, Mr Aamer has four children with his British wife and has been granted permanent British residency. He has never met his youngest son, born after he was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 and then imprisoned by the US government.
