Non NHS Services

A number of items of service are not covered by NHS regulations. We are pleased to offer a range of medical examinations and certification to registered patients and employers as well as private patients. As these do not come under your doctor's terms of NHS service, a fee will be charged in accordance with the British Medical Association recommendations.

Medicals and services commonly offered include:

  • Pre-employment
  • Employment
  • HGV / Taxi driver
  • Elderly fit-to-drive
  • Travel vaccinations not covered under the NHS
  • Medicals for life insurance purposes

Certificates and forms include:

  • Private sicknote
  • Passport application form (photo) / Shotgun Certificate
  • New-style driving licence application / photograph
  • Freedom from infection
  • School fees insurance claim form
  • Private medical insurance claim form
  • Sickness / accident / travel insurance claim form (without consultation)

Please contact the Practice for further information. When making an enquiry it is helpful if you are able to provide a copy of the form(s), we will then be able to let you know the likely cost of the report/examination which will depend on the complexity and the time involved.

When the Practice is closed, you should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
