Fees For Non General Medical Services

As from 1.4.22 - next review date 1.4.2023

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.

Unfortunately often there are no standard forms and occasionally we will not be able to quote 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 payments to the surgery must be made at the time of the request.

Cheque or Cash  - please make cheques payable to Gudgeheath Lane Surgery. Card payments accepted at the Surgery reception desk.

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.
