Who are Medicals4Less
The business was started in 2018 by GP Ella Russell in Leeds after recognising the need to provide driver medicals flexibly and at a reasonable cost to the driver/company as the average cost of these if provided by an NHS GP is about £120/£130. Ella is a qualified GP who was a business partner in a practice but left to develop the business. She is also a busy mum of 3 children!
Ella was driven by a perceived need to be able to provide medicals at the right price, flexibly and professionally. She has worked hard at maintaining the high standards and building contacts with councils, driving schools, bus companies etc. A lot of business now comes from word of mouth.
Medicals4less are now expanding and we have a variety of new franchise opportunities right now in several locations. If you want to join with us as we continue our expansion across the UK, we would like to hear from you.
Medicals 4 less is a service I use on a regular basis for HGV medicals for my business Lawler’s Driver Training.
I have found Dr Russell’s business provides an excellent service. Dr Russell’s communication with available dates for my clients is always prompt and the waiting time for this service is very minimal.
I have used this service for 4 years and never had any negative feedback from clients. In fact, clients are impressed with the service and how comfortable they feel when attending a medical.
Dr Russell in my opinion has great communication skills within her business and Dr Russell always appears to be self-disciplined and organized. I would describe her personality to be caring and kind towards others yet displays a patient manner with a dynamic and bright focus to her business.
I have always had great feedback from my clients and the service is always fast and efficient, I would recommend Medicals 4 less and Dr Russell to anyone inquiring about Medicals
UK Surfacing Contractors Ltd would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Russell for the swift and professional manner in which she and the practice dealt with our request for a medical for an employee of ours.
They were very accommodating with the appointment times and dates, offering after work and weekend slots.
Dr Russell assisted in the filling out of the very complicated form, highlighting where it needed to be signed and what details the employee needed to complete.
The service provided was efficient and friendly and we would highly recommend Dr Russell and the practice for any Medical needs for a company.
What you need
You can be a qualified Doctor but not mandatory IF they are sure they can find a qualified and reliable Dr to provide the service on their behalf. Dr must be GMC registered and have professional insurance in place. The franchisee (or their representative) must be professional, flexible, responsive, willing to work evenings and weekends and be willing to work in a supportive team.
There is just no escaping the fact that running your own business can be hard work. However, you are doing it for yourself and the rewards of a Medicals4less franchise will be there for you to see from day one. If you possess the following attributes, then a Medicals4less franchise could be just what you have been looking for:
A willingness to work hard, because there is simply no substitute for hard work.
A willingness to persevere, because there will always be times when things don’t go according to plan.
The desire to work for yourself, and take proper control of your own destiny.
The desire to work with others who all share your commitment to the highest standards.
