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.
We are unable to provide the Meningococal B (Men B) vaccination privately. We do offer it on the NHS to those who are eligible.
For more information on why GPs charge fees please see the BMA website here.
We accept payment by cash or cheque only.
GPs do not provide an occupational health service as part of their NHS responsibility nor can they provide this service to you even if it is funded by you. This includes vaccination against hepatitis B for the purpose of occupational health.
Under Health and Safety Regulations, your employer or educational institution has a duty to provide a safe working environment and, therefore, appropriate health advice for those at risk of infection with hepatitis B.
We advise you to contact your employer or educational institution who will be able to make arrangements with an occupational health provider for the provision of any immunisation which you may require following an appropriate assessment of the risk to which you are exposed.
If you are self-employed the responsibility for providing a safe working environment lies with yourself.
