Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
- Housing forms
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our practice staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Our list of charges for non NHS related work is available within the practice and a copy can also be found here Non NHS Fees
Should you have any questions regarding the charges please do not hesitate to contact a member of the practice team. In some cases the cost may have to be increased of after review the form turns out to be more complex that when first assessed. If this happens you will be advised and no work will commence until you have been advised and agreed to the additional cost.
Any requests can take up to ten working days to complete depending on complexity and whether the doctor is expected to review your patient records in order to complete the form.
