FEES AND CHARGES FOR NON- NHS SERVICES

Medicals/certificates- Why are some fees charged?

Some services we provide are not considered part of the NHS. For this reason they will incur a fee (prices recommended by the (BMA) British Medical Association). It is important to understand that the Partners are not employed by the NHS they are self-employed and they have to cover their costs, for example: staff, buildings, heating, lighting etc.- in the same way as any small business does.


Below is an example of some of the items that are NOT covered by the NHS


  • Insurance and pre-employment medicals such as HGV, LGV, Taxi driver
  • Fitness to travel and fitness to attend school
  • Medical reports such as Bupa
  • Holiday cancellation forms
  • Army/police forms
  • Power of attorney forms


If the form you need filling in is not listed above, reception should be able to advise you of whether a fee will be charged.
