Practice Plus Group provide and operate mobile medical services throughout the UK .These locations provide a faster referral to treatment service than attending a local hospital. The service operates from a single 12.5 Mtr self-contained trailer to a 13.6M trailer housing MRI. This service works across the country and may involve overnight stays.
