Fees For Non General Medical Services

The Practice has a commitment to provide general medical services to all our patients, and this is covered under the NHS. However, certain services are not provided under the NHS and in these cases the doctors can charge a fee.

The Surgery is unable to oblige with any ‘Occupational Health’ services / Hep B injections etc.

Some drugs are not available via the NHS, (e.g. travel vaccines) and patients will need to contact a local Private Travel Clinic for this service. 

Unfortunately, often there are no standard forms and occasionally we will not be able to quote for a price without viewing the form and assessing what information is required. In these cases please liaise with a member of staff.

The Surgery aims to keep all these additional expenses to only those necessary, or as requested by the patient.

ALL SERVICES MUST BE PAID FOR BEFORE THE WORK IS UNDERTAKEN BY THE DOCTOR AND IF AN APPOINTMENT IS MADE BUT NOT ATTENDED THEN THE PRACTICE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUND HALF THE FEE. (PLEASE CANCEL APPOINTMENTS IN GOOD TIME TO ALLOW ANOTHER PATIENT TO BE SEEN BY THE GP) THANK YOU

Please be aware that Private work left with us for the GP to complete has a turnaround time of up to 3-4 weeks.  This is due to the fact that NHS work takes priority over Private work. We will call you when the paperwork is ready for collection.

Private Medical Reports/Insurance Claim Forms/Supporting letters

Our GPs receive many requests for reports from patients but do not have a contractual obligation to fill in these reports and all reports/letters/forms attract a fee. These items are Private work and not NHS work.

In light of this, you will have been informed of the cost of the work when you requested your medical information. If the receptionist is unable to tell you the fee at that time, due to the work being of a nature the surgery has not seen previously, then you will receive a call from an administrator prior to the work being carried out, to advise you of the fee.

Please be aware that under the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 your request may not be ready for collection until a month after it is submitted to the surgery.

Please do not contact the surgery to chase your report until close to the end of the month timescale as your request is likely to be with the GP for action and we will call you when it is ready for collection.
