26 March 2020 - we presently are unable to offer medicals. We hope to resume this service once we can return to normal working procedures.
Taxi Medicals can be carried out at the practice by Dr Mark Dourish who is registered with the Council Licensing Department. He can carry out examinations for people applying for a first taxi license and for existing taxi drivers needing to renew their license.
The medical is booked into a thirty minute slot. Please bring along your medical questionnaire for completion, you will need to return the completed form to the licensing office.
If you have ischemic heart disease (had a heart attack, angina, coronary artery surgery or had a stent inserted) you will need to have a treadmill test every three years to hold a taxi license.
Diabetics should be keeping a record of at least twice daily blood sugar testing and be attending for annual review with their GP or specialist.
The fee for the medical is £85.00 (cash payment - receipt provided).
