Patient charges for Non-NHS Services

Why do we charge for some services?

GPs are contracted to the NHS to provide medical services for their patients. This is provided for free. Where the patient seeks a service that is not included within this contract, a charge will be made.

Work outside doctors’ main NHS contracts, includes:

Work for local and central government, e.g. social services work, mental health assessments.

Work for the NHS that does not form part of their main contract, e.g. lectures to NHS staff, GP.

Reports and examinations requested by third parties, e.g. insurance reports, medico-legal work.

Reports and certificates requested by patients ,e.g. to support an application for a driving licence, private prescriptions, letters for school or work.

We ask to be allowed 28 working days to complete these requests.


Examination / School Requests

During the school year we sometimes receive requests from parents for a letter to confirm that the reason their child has missed and exam or not performed to their normal standard is because the child has been ill. These letters incur a charge as they do not form part of standard NHS work.
