Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

Sickness Certficates The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self Certification form, which can be found here

 

Private Fees

Most of the work we do is covered by our NHS contract, but we are expected by the Government  to charge for Non-NHS work, as do dentists and other professionals,  irrespective of whether a patient is receiving benefits or not. Rates

Below is a guide to our nationally approved fees, which need pre-payment in cash.

Commonly,
private certificate for work (if insisted upon by employer) £30,  including for Children with poor school attendance  who's teachers insist on it.
Insurance form (sickness claim or BUPA or travel cancellation)    £30
HGV examination   £100

Any letter required for Housing or any other association  £40
Private Prescription (for anti-malarial tabs)  £15
Gymn applications   £30
Certain Holiday Vaccinations, including HepB £40

HepB for Occupational purposes, you will need to get it from your work, as per new regulations. They should have access to an Occupational Health department which will give you proper counselling according to what type of work you do.

Appeals against ESA decisions and medical evidence request for benefits
We have seen an explosion in appeals, as nearly everyone appeals. We simply have not got the time to do this extra paperwork   as we're already inundated with work.
We charge £30, and you must remember that you may not always agree with what we write as we need to be objective, even though we are on your side.
Where letters are complex, we may need to charge £60

ID card (quick signing back of photo) £25

Passport £30. You will see in the passport offices guidance, that GP are NOT expected to sign your form unless they are absolutely sure. You might have been a patient who doesn't come so often. Just because we have your record, it doesn't mean that we can swear by your identity.
