Taxi medicals- clarification
The LMC has previously provided advice about performing occupational health medicals. This advice can be found on the LMC website. This advice has led to some confusion and consternation. To clarify, when performing a taxi medical, the LMC advises that clinicians carry out the medical, and complete the paperwork. However, in the section which asks “is the patient fit/unfit to drive a taxi” we advise that a comment is written along the lines “I am not qualified to make this assessment, and request that the licencing authority makes this decision”.
