Non-NHS (Private) Services

The NHS provides free health care for most people.

It is important to understand that GPs are self-employed and not all of the services we provide are covered by the NHS payments to the practice.

Please expect a fee for non-NHS services. The staff or your doctor should inform you of any charges before carrying out non-NHS work.

Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Fitness to fly certificates
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Private sick notes
  • Certificates for College and School Examinations
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Firearms

Please see this article for further information: Why does my doctor charge fees?

If you would like to submit a request, please provide full details and submit an ‘Admin Query’ and our team will get back to you with the next steps, confirming the work, the fees and the timeframes.
