Occupational Health

GP Appointment £60

Due to COVID-19 all appointments will be by phone or video initially, using common platforms such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime.  If a face-to-face physical appointment is required this will be arranged by the Doctor.

Occupational health is an area of medicine that deals with the interplay between health and work - how work affects health and how health affects work.

Our GPs offer a range of occupational health services including sickness certification, vaccinations and work-related medicals, including x-rays, ECGs, lab tests and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.

If you require a sickness certificate or vaccination you can book a General GP appointment.

If your require a medical please contact us in advance.  You can send us a copy of the medical you need completed and we will assess the time required and let you know how much this will cost.  It is important that you book the correct appointment duration to ensure the GP has adequate time to complete the medical you require.  The cost of any imaging, ECG, lab tests or other tests will be charged in addition to the consultation fee. 

Not all occupational health matters fall within the remit of a GP.  In some cases the GP may need to refer you to an Occupational Health Physician.  If you have a complex occupational health issue please feel free to contact us and we will advise if this is something a GP can deal with or whether a referral will be required.
