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.)
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
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 allow plenty of time for these types of requests to be completed. It can take up to 30 days to respond to, 60 days if deemed excessive.
Please note, on the advice from the Passport Office, the doctors are no longer able to countersign paperwork for passports. The doctors are also not able to complete Power of Attorney forms or Mental Capacity Forms. These will need to be completed by Specialists in that field.
Please be aware that the GP has the right to refuse any non-NHS service requests.
