NOTE: During Summer 2018 we will have fewer clinical and administrative staff - it will take substantially longer to process Non-NHS Services as we will need to give priority to clinical work. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
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. If we need to make a charge for the work, we will ask you to pay this at the reception desk at the beginning of the process. We will print you a receipt. We can take card payments. We have tried to keep the prices as low as possible and as simple as possible however sometimes we are asked to do work that is not straightforward and may need a special price. Our prices are related to the amount of time it takes the GP and the administration team to complete the work.
Some requests are more complicated and may require that the reception team take your document and consult with others before we contact you and let you know if there is a cost / what that cost may be.
We will not start work on any Non-NHS request until we have received payment. This is due to too many instances where work has been done and not been paid for or not collected.
Non-NHS Work costs the practice more than it receives in income to cover the activity. This may mean price increases or a reduction in services provided. We have to focus GP time on providing NHS Services.
Please do not ask GPs to complete forms that can be completed by other professionals (such as passport photos etc.).

Hepatitis B Vaccinations for Work Purposes
We are not able to provide HepB vaccinations for occupational health reasons.
This is because we are not licensed to provide this service.
