Non-NHS 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. With this in mind, 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.

Private Medical Examinations

Medical examinations for special purposes such as pre-employment, fitness to travel, elderly drivers, fitness to undertake sports etc., will require longer than a routine appointment.

These examinations do not form part of NHS services and as a result you will be charged for any such examination. Please inform the receptionist when arranging such appointments. You can also contact the practice manager by completing our Ask the Practice a Question form for further details on non NHS charges.
