Increase in Fees for Non NHS services from 1st October 2019
If you request work that is not provided for under the terms of the NHS Primary Care Services contract, your GP may be happy to undertake such work for you, but, as this is a private service, you will incur a charge for completion of your request. Our priority is NHS work. Non-NHS work is charged in line with British Medical Association Guidelines. We review our fees annually in line with recommendations made by the BMA and give notice of an increase of existing fees and the addendum of new non NHS work which we will not be chargeable (including photocopying of lost sick notes and certain letters) as of 1st October 2019.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request or bring a letter detailing your requirement, including any forms, into the practice. Our staff will contact you BEFORE the work is done to confirm that your GP is able to do the work requested, and inform you of the charge payable.
If you wish to proceed, we will usually commit to complete the work that you have requested within 15 working days from date of payment. Should this not be possible, for example due to GP holidays or requests for a larger than normal piece of work, our staff will inform you when they contact you as above.
As soon as your GP has completed your request, you will be contacted and we will arrange for it to be available for collection.
Please note that we can only accept payment by Cash or cheque (patient registered only). Payment for most services will be required in advance.
