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
- 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.
These types of requests will take a minimum of 10 working days and up to a maximum of 20 working days to respond by.
Please note, on the advice from the Passport Office, the doctors are no longer able to countersign paperwork for passports unless the patient is very well known to the doctor.
Please be aware that the GP has the right to refuse any non-NHS service requests.
