Non-NHS Services

The NHS provides healthcare to most people free of charge. There are exceptions; prescription charges for example have existed in England since 1951. The doctors and healthcare team however are required to make a charge for all services that fall outside of the NHS contract. The services which are not NHS funded tend to fall into two categories as follows

Those where GP’s can charge their NHS patients

  • private sick notes
  • some vaccination services such as those required for foreign travel
  • insurance and holiday cancellation forms
  • paternity testing
  • fitness to travel certificates
  • private prescriptions and dispensing
  • letters and forms regarding fitness to attend some event or undertake extreme sports
  • school fees insurance claims

Those where GPs can charge other institutions / organisations:

  • insurance proposal medical report forms
  • employers requesting vaccination of employees for occupational health reasons
  • adoption and fostering reports and forms
  • various medical reports including employment medicals
  • reports for the Dept of Work & pensions (eg Attendance Allowance or Disability Living allowance forms etc)
  • coroners reports
  • cremation forms

Our Non NHS fees are generally in line with BMA national guidelines and must be paid up front before any work is undertaken.
