WE WILL BE MOVING TO A NEW CLINICAL SYSTEM IN MAY 2019 - THIS WILL BENEFIT THE PRACTICE WITH A MORE UP TO DATE CLINICAL SYSTEM.  PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR MORE INFORMATION. THANKS

**As of 02 April 2019 - our practice will be following the new guidance set out by NHS England regarding prescribing of medicines that you buy over the counter (from pharmacies or supermarkets etc.).  For further information, please click on our page in the Further Information Box on the right hand side of the screen. 

Non-NHS Services

The NHS provides most health care free of charge. However there are a number of other services for which fees can be charged. These are mainly for services not covered by the NHS, such as medical reports for insurance companies.

Doctors are involved in a whole range of non-medical work, largely on the basis that they occupy a position of trust within the community, and are in the position to verify the accuracy of information. If a GP signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a professional duty that s(he) checks the accuracy of such information. This may involve examining the patient's entire medical record.

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.

For more information and for the latest up to date charge, please contact the surgery on 01204 523716 and one of our receptionist will be able to help you.
