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
- Passport signing
- 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.
Accessing Medical Records
We are also able to provide photocopies of medical records upon request. This is charged according to the size of the medical record, up to a maximum of £50.00.
If you would simply like to read your medical record we can arrange an appointment for you to see them with a member of staff. This is charged at £10.00. Please note that you may not take photographs of your record or leave the practice with any original documentation. If you require a photocopy, each page will be charged at the nominal rate.
