More About Brownhills:

Brownhills is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall, West Midlands, England. A few miles south of Cannock Chase and close to the large Chasewater reservoir, it is 6 miles (9.7 km) northeast of Walsall, a similar distance southwest of Lichfield and 13 miles (20.9 km) miles north-northwest of Birmingham. It is part of the Aldridge-Brownhills parliamentary constituency and neighbours the large suburban villages of Pelsall and Walsall Wood. It lies within the boundaries of the historic county of Staffordshire.

The town lies close to the route of the ancient Watling Street, and although there is no record of its existence before the 17th century, Ogley Hay – a district of the town today – is recorded as a settlement in the Domesday Book. Brownhills quickly grew around the coal-mining industry, especially after the town became linked to the canal and railway networks in the mid-19th century. By the end of the century, Brownhills had grown from a hamlet of only 300 inhabitants to a town of more than 13,000, of whom the vast majority were employed in the coal industry. Mining remained the town’s principal industry until the 1950s; the subsequent closure of the pits led to a severe economic decline that has continued until the present. The local authority instituted a regeneration programme in 2007, which was hoped would revive the town’s fortunes, but there has been little subsequent development.

What does the D4 medical involve?

During a D4 Medical, a registered medical professional will conduct a thorough examination, which includes:

  • An eyesight test using a Snellen chart
  • Blood pressure checks to ensure that your blood pressure meets the DVLA’s criteria
  • A medical history questionnaire

The medical professional will also assess your overall health and any medications you are currently taking to ensure that you meet the necessary standards for driving a motorhome. The duration of the medical assessment usually takes between 10 to 20 minutes, depending on your health and medical history.
