Dr. Mark Wilshere is able to help complete your medical in the modern and relaxing Springfield Suite at Spire Elland Hospital in Halifax. 

A full range of medicals are available from HGV and Taxi to Visa Medicals for working abroad. We understand that appointments with your own GP may take some weeks, but at Spire Elland Hospital we can usually accommodate you within a week. If you require blood tests or x-rays, these can usually be performed within a few days. We appreciate the time pressures you may be under and where possible, will accommodate your needs as best we can. Our usual turnaround time for completion of your forms, medical review, examination and investigations is usually just one week.

Appointments last 30 mins. If any other healthcare needs are identified during your medical, Dr. Wilshere will also discuss these with you and advise accordingly.

Most medicals are charged at just £120 for the initial 30 minute consultation, which is a standard price that many NHS GP surgeries also charge. Once your medical is complete, we inform your NHS GP. Seeing Dr. Wilshere also reduces the workload for NHS practices for this private work and so we are happy to help out and free up GP time.
