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.)
- Elderly Driver Insurance certificates
- 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. Some insurance forms such as the certificates for Elderly Drivers Insurance appear deceptively simple but need a full medical examination for their completion. Examinations of this nature take time so please ensure that the Receptionist knows the reason for your appointment. The fee due is payable by the patient at the time of the appointment.
Please see our private fees list at reception for a list of the chargeable fees.
