Non-NHS Services

Private Medical Examinations

These are available for insurance, HGV and pre-employment purposes. A fee is charged based on the recommended published sales from the BMA. Please ask at reception. Private Charges

Some of the work or requests we are asked to cary out by patients is not covered by the NHS. As a result a fee may be payable. Please find below more information about our charrges for non NHS work.

Medical Examinations

Some insurance forms can appear deceptively simple but need a full examination for their completion. Examinations of this nature take time and, therefore, a fee has to be charged.

A special appointment will be required and the fee payable at the time of the appointment. Please advise the reception staff at the time of booking. It is extremely helpful if the form can be left at the surgery prior to your appointment.

Pre-employment, HGV and PSV licenses are not paid for by the NHS.


The Doctor is only allowed to sign a passport application if they have known you personally for a minimum of two years. Doctors are not the only people who can sign your passport application.

Cancellation of Holiday

Holiday cancellation insurance does not require a doctor’s letter. It needs an official claim form obtained from your insurers (part of which you need to complete). If the doctor is asked to sign the form, it will be checked and completed as appropriate. There is a fee for this.
