A regular GP appointment may not give you enough time to discuss your health in regards to a specific job role or for you to obtain a medical report for your employer.
We offer private examinations, which include a full consultation and report, with same-day appointments usually available. If further tests are needed (eg. blood tests or vaccinations), these can usually be completed quickly in a single appointment.
HGV/LGV/PSV driver medicals
Lorry drivers put immense pressure on their bodies by sitting for extended periods of time, often under stressful circumstances with heavy traffic and deadlines to meet. Common problems for lorry drivers include eyesight issues, diabetes, psychiatric and neurological conditions, spinal problems and sleep disorders.
The medicals we offer include:
- HGV (heavy goods vehicle) driver medical
- PSV (public services vehicle – bus/coach) driver medical
- LGV (large goods vehicle) driver medical
Your medical will take approximately 15 minutes and include an analysis of your medical history and a physical examination. You’ll receive your medical report on the same day as your assessment.
The cost of a HGV/PSV/LGV medical is £75.
Taxi driver medicals
As a taxi driver, you need to be physically fit for the role. You can have a taxi medical if you’re applying for a first taxi licence, or looking to renew your existing licence. In both cases, you will receive your health report the same day as your assessment. Each taxi medical can involve a number of different tests.
Although the majority of councils allow taxi drivers in their area to go to any NHS GP, make sure you check with your licencing department before you come to us.
The cost of a taxi driver medical is £75.
