  • Fever, Cough, Loss of taste or smell

Please rearrange your appointment by emailing us on info@vitalmedicals.co.uk .

If during the medical one of our healthcare professionals identifies or has concerns you, the client may be suffering from Covid-19, they have power to stop the medical unless they are satisfied that the risk of covid -19 is minimal, (for example, recent negative lateral flow/PCR test within 48 hours) this may involve postponing the medical for the applicant.

 

Masks – Masks are no longer legally required to be worn. However, medicals require at times close contact and therefore you will be strongly encouraged verbally or via signs to wear such masks. All efforts will be ensured that our staff wear masks unless exempt.

 

Hygiene– Increased cleaning will be enforced and therefore there may be delays to the medical. Where possible if hand gel is available, we invite all clients to please use, as well as use the one off pens if available to complete their forms.

  • Eye tests.
    • The eye test will be performed with a Snellen chart. This chart is wall mounted or This is a screening test to pass the standards set out by the DVLA and not that of a formal eye test at the optician with equipment. If you fail your eyesight test the clinician will inform that your sight does not meet the necessary criteria for the medical examination. In such situation you are given the choice of either continuing and completing the form, or deferring the optician portion of any assessment to an optician. This is at the cost of the individual. If your assessment form does not allow for an individual section to be completed by an optician, then your return to us for a reassessment upon failing your eye test will be covered under the re test policy if booked within 60 days.
    • If you have failed your eye test you will ensure that you do not drive any class 2 vehicles until this is rectified i.e with the use of spectacles.
  • Blood pressure. Blood pressure (BP) is variable throughout the day. We use portable digital blood pressure machines and then transfer the information over to the assessment form. If your blood pressure is > 179/99 we will then repeat the blood pressure. This will be done to a maximum of 3 times as per the D4 form. The fee you pay includes the BP being taken 3 times. Any further readings are at the discretion of the individual clinician. If your BP is over 179/99 you will be informed, and may be subject of further DVLA investigation and a delay in your license processing.

  • Free retests. Free Re-tests can be redeemed once if booked within 60 days. The main sources of retest include the eye test which has been explained above and the blood pressure. If your BP is raised over 179/99 we advise speaking to your GP or your doctor to have this rectified as soon as possible for your own safety as well as for the medical. If your BP remains over 179/99 at the re test then you will have failed your medical and any subsequent examinations will incur full costs.
  • Language barrier. We will only carry out the medical if we are confident you can understand the medical information being asked. It is your responsibility to provide a translator. If the doctor feels there is inadequate understanding due to a language barrier they have full rights to stop and cancel the medical.
