Some services provided are not covered under our GP 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
- Passport signing
- Letters for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes (E.g. for school or college)
- Private prescriptions
- Vaccination certificates
BMA: Why GP's Charge Fees?
These services are some of our most requested Non NHS work. Our reception staff will be happy to advise you if your GP is able to accommodate anything out with this list. A copy of our common fees is also available in the link below. Please do not book an appointment with your GP or Practice Nurse for any private letter requests without discussing with reception staff in advance. Letters take GP time and receptionist time so normal turnaround period to be expected would be 1 week. Letters will not be issued on the same day.
