Private medical services and fee structure

Private Medical Services - Fee Structure

The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sickness certificates, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions and certain travel vaccinations (e.g. Hep B) The table below shows our our fees for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines.

If you are booking a private medical please tell the receptionist when booking so that a longer appointment can be allocated. Some medicals will need to be carried out by a GP other than your own.
