If you live in Birmingham and the surrounding area you may require a private medical for a number of purposes. Some jobs, for example, require for a full medical assessment to be undertaken and passed before a licence can be offered. This is true for taxi drivers and HGV/LGV drivers.
Fortunately, private medical assessments are available to book at short notice and a date and time to suit the individual. The Midland Medical Group have a strong presence in Birmingham and offer a full range of private medicals from our well appointed and modern medical centre, based in Birmingham. Our medicals are competitively priced and we offer weekend and evening assessments for those who are unable to attend day time appointments.

To complete a HGV/PCV medical in Birmingham you will need to see a qualified GP who will carry out a full assessment to ensure you are medically fit to drive. The assessment will be made up of two parts, including an interview about your physical and medical health and a full analysis of your medical history. It will also be required to complete a D4 HGV medical form and provide this at the assessment for the GP to review.
The full assessment will include testing for diabetes, neurological disorders, sleep disorders, cardiac, substance abuse and vision.
A HGV/PVC medical will need to be completed before obtaining a licence to drive an HGV for the first time and for each time a licence is renewed. The medical will generally take up to an hour and the results will be provided at the end of the assessment.
