Taxi Medical Template Letter


GPs are being asked to determine Fitness to Drive as part of taxi medical examinations.

This decision should actually be that of the Licensing Authority (i.e. the Council). GPs could refuse to do such medicals if they feel uncomfortable doing so.

Queens Road Surgery has their own letter to send to the Council (attached) which they send off with the application. The Fit/Unfit to Drive statement is then left blank or crossed off. So far, Calderdale Council has not raised any objections regarding this.

Queens Road Surgery is happy for other practices to amend and use the letter for their own patients.
