Certain services provided by the doctors are not covered by the NHS and you may be asked to pay a fee. Fees start at £20 and rise depending on the amount of time and clinical input involved.
Examples of chargeable services include:
- pre-employment medicals
- firearms application forms
- private medicals
- insurance claim forms
- private medical certificates
- fitness to drive/fitness to travel certificates
- holiday cancellation certificates.
This list is not exhaustive and charges for non-NHS work must be paid for either in advance or at the time of collection where the fee is the responsibility of the patient. If a fee for an insurance report or solicitors report requires payment, patients should note that the practice will not release reports to these companies, unless there are exceptional circumstances, until fees are paid.
Fees for non-NHS services are advertised in the practice. If you have any queries about fees or any other private medical services please discuss them with the receptionist or the practice manager.
