Medical Examinations (Non NHS)
Certain services provided by the Doctors are not covered by the NHS and fees are payable for such items as:
- Large Good Vehicle (LGV) and Passenger Service Vehicle (PSV) licences
- Elderly driver licences
- Preemployment medicals
- Private certificates
- Holiday vaccinations
- Insurance claims
- Fitness for sports
Please ask the receptionist for such services. Charges are payable at the time of attendance, and the British Medical Asssociation (BMA) recommended scale of fees is on display at the reception desk. For further information please see Why does my doctor charge fees?
A current list of Non NHS Medical Services fees is held in reception. It you have any queries regarding these, please enquire at Reception.
Self certificates are available from your employer for sickness of up to one week. Any certificate required from the Doctor for periods up to the first week can only be provided as a private certificate for which there is a charge.
Patients, who are not NHS registered at this surgery, can be seen privately. Please contact the Practice Manager regarding fees.
Forms that need to be completed (for example Holiday Insurance Cancellation forms) should be handed at reception. Usually, they are completed within 21 working days of payment receipt, the exception being if the doctor concerned is off sick or on holiday. The reception staff can advise on the fee involved. The forms should be collected from reception where payment is taken.
