Non-NHS services

It is important to understand that the completion by doctors of forms/reports is NOT core NHS work i.e. it is private work undertaken by your GP in their own time and not their usual surgery NHS time. Please try to be patient.

NHS work does and must always take priority over private work.  Forms or reports such as private medical insurance claims, holiday cancellations, sickness or accident reports etc should be brought or sent to the surgery. It will then be given to your doctor for completion. There will be a charge for this, payable in advance.

Insurance forms are reports compiled from your medical records for purposes such as life assurance, mortgages etc. These forms may appear to take some time to complete. Delays can occur if a doctor is on holiday. Please be patient.

Private patients
Patients not eligible for NHS services but who require the use of the surgery facilities will be asked to pay for these services. An estimate of the minimum cost can be made available on request. Please note that fees will be payable on completion of services. The Practice does not operate a credit card system and therefore we cannot accept payment by credit or debit cards. Cheques are accepted with a valid bankers guarantee card, in addition further proof of identity may be required.
