healthNon-NHS Services

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.


There is a file at reception, in which we keep copies of the common forms that students require completing. These have each been assessed and the file tells the receptionist how long to book and what to charge. These fees and times are not negotiable so please do not ask. We would ask that you check with the desk before seeing the doctor as this often wastes an appointment and requires you return on another day.

Do not leave forms till the last minute as we may not be able to complete your form in time. We are not compelled to complete any non-NHS work but do so for the convenience of our practice but never to the detriment of our NHS duties, which always come first.
