Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.). Please note, the eyesight part of these tests are not included as part of the medicals here at the practice. This must be done by a registered optician.
- Insurance claim forms
- To whom it may concern letters
These services are provided at the discretion of the practice.
The Fees and Charges are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales. We are able to take payment for non-NHS services via credit card at the front desk. We will accept Visa, Delta, Mastercard, Switch, Electron but not American Express. Due to data protection, we are unable to take card payments over the phone.
We are also able to take payment by BACS transfer. Please contact the practice for the bank details.
In line with British Medical Association guidance, we do not sign firearms or shotgun licence applications or medical proformas.
We advise you to make arrangements with another Medical Practitioner. As that Practitioner may need to see your medical records, it is recommended that you sign up to online access to see your medical records. This can be done by downloading the NHS app (other providers of online services are available).
