From time to time, we receive requests from our registered patients for services that are not covered by our General Medical Services contract with the NHS. Responding to such requests is subject to the discretion of the GP, and would attract a fee. Examples include requests for supportive letters, holiday cancellation forms and insurance reports. You will be informed of fee charges when documents are submitted.
Medicals for insurance, HGV, PCV, driving, sports and pre-employment are performed outside normal appointment times. Please visit our Consulting Room to make an appointment. Fees are charged for this type of work as it lies outside our NHS contract.
Certain medical certificates will be provided under the NHS:
- Sickness Certificates
- Council tax exemption Discount for severe mental impairment
- Fitness for Jury Service
- Confirmation of Pregnancy
- Voter-absent on grounds of disability
The following are paid for by other agencies:
- Blue badges
- Lawyers reports
- Occupational Health
- Life Assurance medicals
- DSS reports
- Adoption and Fostering
Any other certificate is likely to mean a fee will be charged. The receptionist will advise you what the charge will be when you hand in your form(s).
