Since 2013 D4Drivers has been providing HGV medicals, PCV medicals and occupational health services to individual drivers, HGV training providers and haulage/bus companies. In autumn 2013 we noticed that Group 2 drivers were not getting value for money from their GP’s when getting a mandatory D4 driver medical simply to continue in their jobs. In addition drivers would often have to wait up to 3 weeks before getting a simple driver medical & the eyetest wasn’t included!
We thought that this was unfair and realised that by providing an easy, premium and convenient service we would be able to reduce the costs to drivers, building a nationwide HGV medical clinic network and successful brand in the process.
D4Drivers has the largest network of Doctors and clinics providing HGV/PCV D4 medicals across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. We are now the first choice medical provider for group 2 drivers in the United Kingdom examining over 5000 drivers.
D4Drivers will continue to provide our vital driver medical service to our customers during the current restrictions in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and our opening times are unaffected.
As we fall under the Government's list of key workers and help keep HGV and PCV drivers, as well as taxi drivers and paramedics on the road we will remain fully open throughout the restrictions as they start to ease in Spring 2021. You are still able to attend medical appointments during these restrictions, as confirmed by gov.uk: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do#healthcare-and-public-services.
All of our clinics are going ahead with additional safety precautions in place. You can feel safe in the knowledge that when you attend your appointment with D4Drivers extra precautions have been taken to ensure you are in a COVID safe environment, including regular cleaning of all surfaces and equipment and strict PPE and social distancing measures.
