**Currently due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not providing any private medicals. Unfortunately for the time being patients are asked to contact an alternative private medical provider. We apologise for the inconvenience but trust patients will understand the importance of us being able to provide essential medical services during this time.**
We carry out various examinations for our patients that are not covered by the NHS. These include HGV medicals, Pre-employment medicals, Holiday Cancellation forms, Insurance work etc. Appointments (if a medical is required) can be made by the receptionists.
There is a charge for these services. Please see a list of current charges.
PLEASE NOTE you must allow at least 7 working days for any form you require to be completed by your doctor.
Garstang Medical Practice are not able to provide Pilot licence medical assessments or GP letters for the participation in extreme sports such as marathons, diving, sky-diving, parachuting, bungee jumping etc.
This is a private service and is above the standard NHS requirements for our practice, therefore our GPs have collectively decided that we can unfortunately no longer provide this service to our patients due to the medical legal implications and risk involved. Should a GP make the incorrect decision regarding a patient’s health/ability to fulfil what is required for a pilot licence/extreme sport, the GP in question would not be covered by medical indemnity.
