Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following: clipboard

  • 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

We do these in the last evening appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please book through reception or, if these times are unsuitable, by personal arrangement with your doctor.

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.  

We are often asked to write reports, complete insurance documents, and carry out examinations which are not covered by the NHS. All non-NHS work attracts a fee - some of the work will be paid for by Social Services Departments (for example Blue Badge application forms and Residential Care admittance forms), some may be met by employers (employment medical examinations, HGV examination) but the remainder are the responsibility of the patient. A doctor’s NHS responsibilities and clinical work must take priority over the completion of these forms, and these requests cannot therefore be dealt with immediately. As a general rule, you should allow ten working days for doctors to complete paperwork, unless the particular doctor who will deal with the request is on holiday when it may take a little longer.

Our current scale of charges is shown below. If the service you require is not listed please contact Reception for advice on 01760 721211. We are unable to offer credit facilities and require payment for any service we provide at the time. Receptionists will therefore be unable to release completed paperwork until the fee for the work done has been paid.

The Practice VAT Registration Number is 878 6496 45.
