Most of the services we offer are free under the NHS, however some services such as private letters, insurance and taxi driver medicals, certain vaccinations and other services fall outside our NHS service contract.
As these services are not covered by the NHS and therefore a standard charge may be made in line with the British Medical Association recommendations. The fee will reflect both the doctor's time to carry out the service, the doctor's professional opinion and may also include the cost of nursing or secretarial support, stationery and consumables.
Note we no longer are able to sign passport application or renewal forms for patients.
Information for patients requesting occupational health investigations and immunisations
GPs do not provide an occupational health service as part of their NHS responsibility, nor can they provide this service even if it is funded privately.
Under Health and Safety Regulations, your employer or medical/dental school has a duty to provide a safe working environment and, therefore, appropriate health advice for those at risk of infection.
We advise you to contact your employer who will be able to make arrangements with an occupational health provider for the provision of any immunisation which you may require following an appropriate assessment of the risk to which you are exposed.
Dentistry services are not provided by the NHS.
