Non NHS Services

Non NHS/Private Services

Certain services we provide are not covered by the NHS and you will be asked to pay a fee for these. Please see the examples of services where you will be charged including:

  • Pre-employment medicals
  • Medical report/examination for fitness to drive
  • Private certificates (eg private sick notes)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Some holiday vaccinations such as yellow fever and meningitis

Patients are requested to settle accounts at the time of request.  Travel fees must be paid prior to appointment or on the day of treatment.

Private Letters & Reports

Claim forms, holiday cancellation reports, letters of fact requested for third parties are chargeable and not available on the NHS. 

In the past we have been left with many letters not collected by patients. 

These take up valuable GP and administration time and we request you settle your account at the time of request. 

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or card.
