Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges on a private basis. We ask patients to pre-pay for some of these items. Reception staff will advise you of this and the fee when you enquire.
You can find the policy here and in the Further Information section of the website under Practice Policies and Procedures. Non-NHS work: Pre-paid fees policy for patients
Legal and other reports may also require some time to prepare as these are often done by the doctors outside the normal working day.
Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
- Certain travel vaccinations (see relevant section)
- Power of Attorney / Guardianship forms
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.
Please note, the Partners will not sign photographs to confirm identity.
