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
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.
Please be aware that completion of non-NHS work falls secondary to the Doctors’ priority of dealing with patients’ immediate and ongoing healthcare needs. We therefore regret that we are unable to provide specific timescales for completion of this type of work. It may not be possible to provide information urgently and in these circumstances, please speak directly to your GP who may provide an estimate of when your request can be reasonably completed.
