Some other services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. This takes GP time away from direct patient care Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Private sick notes
  • Letters for children for school for any reason

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.
