Overview


The combined Network Rail Drug & Alcohol Screening and Medical Assessment provides you with all the mandatory prerequisites to undertake your PTS Course and work on the railway.



What's assessed on my Combined Network Rail Drug & Alcohol Screening and Medical Assessment?


During your Network Rail Drug & Alcohol Screening and Medical Assessment, you will undergo a range of tests, assessing;

  • General Health

  • Mobility and Coordination

  • Visual Acuity (eyesight)

  • Visual Field

  • Colour Perception

  • Hearing

You will also be required to provide a breath sample to test for alcohol consumption as well as a urine sample to test for illicit drug use.


The Network Rail Drug & Alcohol Screening and Medical Assessment consist of two separate tests, one based on physical and mental health, the other on alcohol consumption and illicit drug use.


For the Network Rail Medical Assessment, you need to be in reasonable health, have your blood pressure under control and bring glasses if needed to see long distances. If you're taking any medication, over the counter or prescribed, then please bring along your prescription, or details of what you've been taken (specifically, its name and dosage).


With regard to the Network Rail Drug & Alcohol Screening, a urine sample will need to be provided for assessment. The drug groups listed above will be tested for and candidates need to ensure that they do not, and have not, taken drugs as any positive result will lead to a 5-year suspension.
