Non-NHS Services

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Our doctors' priority is to focus on the medical care and health needs of our NHS patients. Writing certain letters or filling out forms is done in the doctors' own time, outside of the day-to-day care of their patients. The practice charges fees for certain medical letters, reports and certain medical examinations. These fees reflect the time spent by the doctors and the administrative team and are the standard fees recommended for such work by the British Medical Association.

You can read more here about why GPs sometimes charge fees.

Please give your form or request for a letter to the reception team. They will be logged by a member of our admin team who will then phone you to advise you of the fee. If you are happy to proceed, then it will be passed on to the relevant GP. You will be contacted once it has been completed. Current turnaround time is approximately 3 weeks.
