Non NHS Services
Some services provided by general practices fall outside the scope of the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include:
- Driving medicals - HGV / PCV / LGV
- Insurance forms
- Private medical reports
- Private medical certificates
The practice nursing team can provide travel advice as an NHS service. However, some recommended travel vaccinations are not available under the NHS. The nurse providing the travel advice will be able to advise you of any fee.
Passport / Photo card Driving Licence Applications do not have to be completed by a doctor, the practice does not therefore provide this service.
The practice has a published schedule of standard fees for services it can provide that are not funded by the NHS. Where the practice is asked to provide a service not covered by the schedule it will confirm the fee for that service before it is provided.
The practice reserves the right to alter fees set out in the schedule. Any such alterations will be notified before the respective service is provided.
If fees are to be paid directly by a third party, their letter of authority containing invoice instructions must be provided at the time of requesting the service.
Without exception, all fees are payable in advance of the service being provided.
Our reception team will be happy to advise you on appointment availability and applicable charges.
