Private medicals

Private medicals for HGV, PSV, insurance purposes etc. can be booked at reception. At busy times or when we are short-staffed we may not be able to provide private medical examinations.

We ask you to allow time for these forms to be completed as the doctors receive a number of forms to complete on a weekly basis. Although we understand these are important, the day-to-day care of patients is our priority. If you leave your mobile number we can send you a message when they are ready. These could take up to 7 days.
