What is a private medical?
Although medical assessments are available on the NHS, a regular GP appointment is rarely enough time to discuss your concerns related to specific job roles or situations and in many cases, you will need to pay to receive a medical report for a job role. A referral on the NHS for further tests can also take many weeks to come through and often with medicals, a quick turnaround is vital to appease employers.
The doctors at Pall Mall Medical offer private examinations, which include a full consultation and report, with same-day appointments usually available. If further tests are required such as blood tests, vaccinations, scans or X-Rays, these can usually be completed in a single appointment, giving you the information you need in as short as time as possible.
If you would like to discuss a specific medical form you need completing, whether you are independent and need a VISA medical form completing or you are a candidate seeking a medical screening for sport or employment, please contact us at Pall Mall Medical for a personal quotation.

Taxi driver medicals

A taxi medical can involve a number of different tests at an affordable and competitive rate. You can call us to discuss prices and services before committing to an appointment.

What do I need to bring to my driver medical appointment?
You will need to bring a copy of any forms provided by your local council for your taxi medical with you as well as photographic identification (i.e. photo driving licence or passport).
To register will Pall Mall Medical for any of the above tests, we need a brief summary of your medical history from your NHS GP, which should include any major injuries and/or illnesses and any medication you are taking.
