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.
The requirement for specific documentation can take a considerable time to compile and so a sliding scale charge is applied. Requests for documents should allow 28 days for compilation and receipt. This may involve multiple telephone calls or letters to and from the practice. The scales can be found in the downloadable PDF contained within the Non-NHS Fees Guidance within this section.
