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
- Passport signing
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
All forms received for completion by your GP are classed as ‘private work’ and are usually completed by the GP outside normal surgery hours. The GPs NHS work takes priority and we are unable to give a timescale for the completion of the form.
When leaving the form at reception, the receptionist will make a note of your contact details and you will be contacted by an administrator when your form is ready for collection. A fee is payable at the GP’s discretion on collection of the form.
