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.
Should you require forms of any kind completing leave them with our receptionist with your phone number. Usually doctors are able to complete these without you but they will phone you if they need more info, this frees up consultation time for those who are ill.
Any such work is not NHS work and NHS consultation time should not be used.
