Fees For Non General Medical Services

The Practice has a commitment to provide general medical services to all our patients, and this is covered under the NHS. However, certain services are not provided under the NHS and in these cases the doctors can charge a fee.

The Surgery is unable to oblige with any ‘Occupational Health’ services / Hep B injections etc.

Some drugs are not available via the NHS, (e.g. travel vaccine) which the surgery purchase, again a charge is levied.

Unfortunately, often there are no standard forms and occasionally we will not be able to quote for a price without viewing the form and assessing what information is required. In these cases please liaise with a member of staff.

The Surgery aims to keep all these additional expenses to only those necessary, or as requested by the patient.

ALL SERVICES MUST BE PAID FOR BEFORE THE WORK IS UNDERTAKEN BY THE DOCTOR AND IF AN APPOINTMENT IS MADE BUT NOT ATTENDED THEN THE PRACTICE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUND HALF THE FEE. (PLEASE CANCEL APPOINTMENTS IN GOOD TIME TO ALLOW ANOTHER PATIENT TO BE SEEN BY THE GP) THANK YOU

Please be aware that Private work left with us for the GP to complete has a turnaround time of up to 3-4 weeks.  This is due to the fact that NHS work takes priority over Private work. We will call you when the paperwork is ready for collection.
