Occupational Health Medicals

Date sent: Thursday 4 January 2018

Dear %recipient.firstname%,

When performing employment medicals GPs do not have to express an opinion about whether a patient is fit to carry out their occupation.   We recently had discussions with District Councils about this in respect of taxi medicals.  The LMC has been asked to produce a letter which practices can give to patients to explain this.  I have attached this letter for you to use, and will also put it on the LMC website.

I hope this is helpful.

Best wishes

Kieran
