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. Please note that this is a guide and fee scales can change over time. A charge may be higher depending on the complexity of a patient’s medical conditions and how long it may take the GP to collate all the necessary information. Why do GPs sometimes charge fees?
