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. A copy of our fees for non-NHS services can be found here.
We do not provide medicals or sign reports that would declare if a patient is fit for flying, extreme sport, joining a gym, running a marathon, piloting a plane etc. We do not have the resources to undertake the necessary cardiovascular tests and full medical examination that would provide the doctor with enough information to make an informed decision. You will need to find a private provider for this.
Patients referred privately need to collect their referral letter from reception five days after the initial consultation. Patients are advised not to make their appointment until they have collected their letter.
