The Secretary of State for Transport has set new tougher targets for the completion of medical case investigations for 2012/2013. These are:

1) to complete 90 per cent of medical applications, where sufficient medical information is provided with the initial application, within 15 days; and

2) to complete 88 per cent of medical applications, where further information is required, within 90 days.

In addition a review is underway of working practices and processes within the Drivers Medical Department to identify opportunities for further improvement and efficiencies.
