Medical examinations

Anyone doing notifiable non-licensed work must have a medical examination carried out by a licensed medical practitioner. It must be repeated every three years.

There is no set fee for this work so doctors should agree a fee before doing the examination.


Registered medical practitioners

HSE (Health and Safety Executive) can appoint registered medical practitioners to do statutory medical surveillance. However, doctors are not employed by HSE.

The company needing the surveillance is responsible for agreeing conditions of service and payments with the doctor.
