Non NHS Charges

Not all services at the Practice are available under the NHS. Most forms for insurance, mortgages, driving, compensation and so on, letters in support of applications/ claims etc are not covered by the NHS. Many travel and occupational vaccinations are also non-NHS.

Where patients request Non-NHS items or services a private fee may be payable.

This page lists some non-NHS services for which fees which may be payable in advance.

This is for guidance only and costs may change without notice.

All fees will include VAT where applicable.

We accept payment by most credit and debit cards or cash.

Cancellation Of Holiday

Holiday cancellation Insurance does not require a doctor’s letter. It needs an official claim form. This is obtained from your insurers and there is a section that you will have to complete. This may incur a fee.

Further Information

Some insurance and medical forms appear deceptively simple but time is needed to review your whole medical records. This is to ensure that even a short form is completed accurately as insurers may invalidate any current or future claims that are made if details are incomplete.

For this reason even a simple question can take a considerable amount of the doctor’s time to review all your medical records. This is despite medical information being summarised on the computer. Often only significant diagnoses are recorded and it is therefore necessary to refer back to the old paper records. This would involve reading of consultations, hospital letters and investigation results over several years.

Our priority is our NHS work.

NON NHS work is charged in line with the British Medical Association Guidelines.

Please note that it is surgery policy NOT to convert private prescriptions to NHS prescriptions - see our Repeat Prescriptions page.
