I've just had a medical with you in Norwich. Booking the appointment by phone was quick and very easy. The instructions received by email were clear and easy to follow. I arrived early and the woman on the desk knew who I was and was very polite and professional. I chatted with a young man while waiting. The doctor greeted me on time and was very friendly and professional. Very pleasant experience and would go back again. Richard Button

"Just thought I would write back and let you know that the venue at Grays in Essex was excellent. I was able to park outside for free and grab a cup of tea from the cafe before my appointment. Dr Haroon was very charming and professional. I shall recommend your services to other drivers. Thank you." Adrian Polley, Dagenham

"Thank you all.  What a great service, I will be back again!" David Moreton, Coventry

Thought I would send you an email to say what a fantastic service you are providing in Norwich at a very reasonable price, my previous experience is one of high cost for the exact same medical usually in a facility for the offshore industry, your doctor was very friendly a really nice man, I will be recommending you to all of my fellow lorry drivers for when they need their medicals doing, Regards Tom Laxon

"I attended a medical on Monday. From my initial enquiry with Helena and my confirmation with Steve to the medical with Dr Bell I cannot recommend your company enough. Friendly attitude. Professional service. And perfect location choice in Doncaster. (genius). I wish your business every success. You've got a brilliant team. All the best, Tony"

"Having worked alongside Cotswold Medicals for as long as I have, you have always provided clients with an excellent service but Dr Thornley has exceeded my expectations. Please pass on my thanks and best wishes." Patsy, HCT Group, London

"I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with the whole process of having my medical through your company. After only being offered one date and time by my GP practice, which was unsuitable for me, I took to the internet to try and make alternative arrangements. I am so glad that I did and that I came across your website. Helena who arranged my appointment was extremely helpful and quickly found a suitable appointment time, which fitted around my work. In addition, the cost was half that of an appointment with my own GP. The confirmation letter was very informative, with accurate directions to the location and Dr Khosla was very pleasant and thorough. In fact, when I couldn't get my car started after the appointment he offered to help me. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone requiring a driver’s medical". Jenny, Stafford

"Had a medical with you this morning in Doncaster. After finding you on the web rang up, booked and attended. Fantastic service, so easy, people all so very polite. Will not hesitate in using you again. Will recommend you to others and many thanks for a superb service". Mr J Hollis, Lincoln

"Thank you so much for getting the medical appointment as such short notice, I was so glad to have come across your website, and such a saving on Kettering prices, which ranged from £121 to £165." John Meredith, Kettering

"Dr Haroon who I saw in Bedford came out for me early, and did a thorough eye test, blood pressure reading, and a proper chat about general health and wellbeing. I felt relaxed and cared for. I'll not hesitate in recommending you to my employer, and look forward to using your service again in 5 years time!" Darron Keeling

"Kate, I just wanted to say thank you for getting my medical arranged so easily - and please pass on my thanks around the office; I didn't catch the name of the lady I spoke to before you but it was so nice to be dealt with in such a friendly and professional manner. Should I meet anybody in the future who needs to get a driver's medical then for sure I will recommend that they talk to you. (And yes, you can use that on your website!)" Mark Crowley Russell

Thank you very much Matthew and all your team. Excellent service!  I'll recommend to anyone of my friends in future! Thanks again.” Chris Gooderham, Lowestoft

"Just thought I would write back and let you know that the venue at Grays in Essex was excellent. I was able to park outside for free and grab a cup of tea from the cafe before my appointment.

The clinic was easy to find and the doctor was there to greet me. The price is simply fantastic and I couldn’t be happier! I will be mentioning your great service to my friends and colleagues and would like some flyers to hand out.” David Williams, Newport

"I'm thoroughly impressed! People don't give praise enough though they're quick to complain. Your service is outstanding. Us professional drivers are grossly under-appreciated and it's brilliant to find a company such as yourselves trying to help out. That most GPs charge in excess of £130 in some cases is astonishing - and disconcerting. Keep up the good work." Steve Dyke, Sheffield

"I would just like to pass on my sincerest thanks and gratitude to both Becca and Dr Godley (Doncaster) for an outstanding job well done. As a Ex Warrant Officer in logistics, it is all too frequent in this day and age to receive poor and shoddy service, something I was not accustomed to in the military, but this cannot be said of both Becca and Dr Godley. Many thanks to you both and many thanks to Cotswold Medicals for an outstanding service. I wish you all the best for the future.   Geoff Burkill, Training Manager, Carl Stahl Evita Ltd"

"I came to you because my HGV training school said you were good. You've been amazing!

Fellow drivers, I was looking for value for money medical as my GP charges £100. I typed hgv medical into Google looking for doctor in Bristol area, Cotswold Medicals seemed most genuine as they carry out medicals for 'First Bus' in Bristol bus station clinic.

I have been recommending Cotswold Medicals to my trainees for over five years now. My licence is up for renewal next month and I obviously chose Cotswold Medicals. The booking system was easy and quick with a very pleasant (and not at all pushy) lady to talk to on the phone. I used your centre in Nottingham and the medical was carried out by a very thorough doctor who explained everything to me as she did it - as a bloke, I don’t look forwards to going to see a doctor! It was all over in around 15 minutes with the D4 medical form filled in and ready to be sent off to the DVLA! I will definitely continue to recommend Cotswold Medicals to my trainees when applying for their LGV licences. Many thanks, Ian Markwick DSA ADI (LGV) Ian Markwick Driver Training Ltd.

I needed my D4 medical as quickly as possible so i went down to my local surgery to book an appointment and i was quoted 3 to 4 weeks to get a medical, i rang you company on 8th April and they arranged it for 11:30 the next day.
