Non-NHS Services

Shakespeare Surgery is primarily a NHS service provider. Due to the background of various individuals within our organisation, and the ethos that Shakespeare Services operates under, there is more to our organisation than might typically be expected. For various reasons some of these services are not available on the NHS.

We therefore offer the following services on a private/consultancy basis for all patients, local residents and companies to take advantage of to suit their needs.


Shakespeare Services is the leading local supplier of medicals to a number of Insurance Underwriters as well as Agencies who find local doctors on their behalf.

We guarantee a timely, cost effective service that is also convenient to your clients with numerous times and days always being available. Our experienced Doctors and Nurses provide a professional service in line with your specific requirements, and can undertake not only routine examinations but also a variety of investigations at your request. We are prepared to simply perform examinations or give opinions in line with your needs.

For more information please contact the Medicals Coordinator.

HGV, PSV and Taxi Medicals

We are pleased to able to offer anyone this service. Several local hauliers are pleased to take advantage of the speed and convenience that Shakespeare Services can provide and with our experience in occupational health work we can advise on specific difficult issues that may be related to driving assessments in a broader sense.

General Health Checks and Medicals

Simple general health checks

  • Worried about your health?
  • Want a general check up?
  • Wonder what your blood pressure actually is?
  • What’s my cholesterol and should I have it checked?
  • How do I loose weight and get fit?
  • Do I need an ECG to check my heart?
  • Do I need a check for diabetes as it runs in my family?

In today’s increasingly health conscious world there is lots of information around about what appears to be an ideal health but sometimes it feels there are no easy answers about how this relates to you. The local doctor’s surgery often appears to be so busy looking after lots of ill people that you don’t like to bother them with these seemingly trivial queries. But they are important to you and you want to hear answers! After all knowledge is the most powerful resource that we all have. The only way any change occurs is if we make it ourselves.

Shakespeare Services can assist in this process by giving you swift timely advice and information, combined with appropriate examinations and investigations, to help you make the necessary changes that you wish. This will let you see the future as you want it and achieve it now. Part of the way we can help you achieve these changes, when you may have struggled by yourself, is by our innovative use of NLP techniques to help you work out your key triggers so you can decide what works best for yourself.

Second opinion/clarification of matters

Sometimes when you have seen your GP, he may have missed the real concern you were worried about. However, you don’t feel that now you can go back and ask again because you don’t want to appear foolish, asking what may sound like an odd question.

The consultant at the hospital again may have been excellent but because of the time pressures he may have been rushed. This meant that you couldn’t ask all the questions that you wanted. If you contact us we can help you to fill in the gaps.

Sometimes people just plain disagree with what they have been told by their regular sources of medical help such as their GP, and just want a second opinion from an independent source. Shakespeare Services can help to answer sensitively and discretely all questions, and after an appropriate examination, can offer advice to clarify an individual’s concerns.

For more information contact in confidence the practice.

Please contact us for further information.
