Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Reading

Ensuring the fitness of drivers who spend long hours on the road is crucial for both the driver and their employer. One essential requirement is the HGV Medical, which is necessary in order to obtain the appropriate category on a driver’s license. Additional check-ups are also mandated later on, with repeat medical examinations required at 45 years of age and every five years thereafter until the age of 65, at which point annual medicals become necessary. At Simply Medicals, we specialize in providing convenient, competent, and cost-efficient driver medicals. Our service is not only more affordable than visiting your doctor or optician separately, but it is also designed to be quick and efficient. With most drivers being able to schedule appointments within a week, and with over 22 locations available in the West Midlands and Bristol area, we strive to accommodate the needs of drivers and their demanding schedules. Trust Simply Medicals to handle your HGV Medical needs efficiently and professionally.
