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.). Please bring your form in to the surgery to book this as soon as you receive it as these appointments can be filled very quickly. If your form is for a HGV licence, there are private clinics who are able to complete these forms for you, if we are unable to accommodate you within a time frame which is convenient to you. We are only able to complete these forms for patients currently registered with the surgery.
- 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. As this is private work not covered under the NHS contract, it can take up to 6 weeks to be completed. We will contact you either via telephone or SMS text message when it is ready to be collected. All fees are to be paid on collection.
