DRIVERS MEDICAL REPORTING
We have been advised that we are only able to provide medical reports on your driving where this is requested directly from the Drivers and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA). As such we are unable to provide a supportive letter on your behalf should you be unhappy with the decision on your fitness to drive.
Whilst we sympathise when this affects employment, we are sure you understand that in the interests of safety, we must only complete the recognised forms.
Treatment Provided by the Private Sector
Direct follow up after private treatment is not with your GP practice. This is not an NHS service. Your private treatment provider is responsible for your ongoing review and this should be included in the price they have quoted for your care. However, if you wish us to carry out your private follow up, please contact the practice manager for advice on our fee prior to making any appointment.
