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
- 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.
Patients should not make a surgery appointment for these, this wastes valuable GP time as these appointments are for patients who are ill. Requests for these must be made via reception/insurance clerk. Often the doctor can complete such requests without the need to be seen. However, if the doctor does need to see the patient he/she will ask a clerk to make the arrangements outside surgery times.
Consent is required prior to any work being carried out; you may save time by printing and completing/signing this form prior to coming into the surgery:
