Services which attract a fee

The National Health Service provides most health care to most people free of charge, but there are exceptions. The NHS does not employ GP’s but has a contract with them to provide NHS general medical services for their patients. Sometimes GP’s are asked to provide additional services, which fall outside their NHS contract, and in these circumstances they are entitled to make a reasonable charge for providing them. The Practice has a list of charges compiled using British Medical Association (BMA) guidelines: Private Fees

When a Doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, they need to check the patient’s entire medical record to ensure they are providing accurate information. Therefore we do ask for reasonable notice to complete reports.

Below are a few examples where payment from the patient is required:

  • Private sick note
  • Private prescription
  • Simple statement of fact letter
  • Certain travel vaccinations
  • Medical examinations for sports activities, HGV licence, etc
  • Completion of holiday cancellation form

If you need a form completed, please contact Reception who will be able to advise you about charges.
