From time to time, certain patients require a private medical examination not part of personal medical services. These include Taxi driving medicals, Public Service Vehicle (PSV) medicals and Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) medicals, life and mortgage insurance examinations.
These medicals are usually performed by the patient's general practitioner at the end of surgery or at a time of mutual convenience. By telephoning one of the secretaries arrangements can be made. A payment is required and the secretary will inform the patient at that time.
Forms that need to be completed (i.e. Holiday Insurance Cancellation forms or passport application forms) should be handed at reception. Usually, they are completed within 21 working days of payment receipt - the exception being if the doctor concerned is off sick or on holiday. The reception staff can advise on the fee involved. The forms should be collected from reception where payment is taken.
