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.
Forms For Collection
If you leave a form which needs attention from a doctor (holiday cancellations, insurance forms, sick notes etc.) it will only be ready for collection after five clear working days. This will be longer for doctors who work part-time. When you hand in the form the receptionist will advise you when it will be ready. We encourage payment to be made by cheque for forms which incur fees (holiday cancellations, insurance forms etc. and a deposit of £10.00 is payable in advance). Please ensure you have completed your part and signed consent where applicable.
