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 Services

Some things are not available on the NHS. A local Private GP (known to me from my training years) is set up to do circumcisions, minor surgery, Gardasil, BCG vaccination against TB.

Health Insurance

Benendon Public Service workers         pitfalls

Always check with your insurer. They will not usually cover illnesses that you had before you joined the scheme. Also, they will not be happy to pay for you to see specialists for minor illnesses (even though you yourself might not think it's a minor illness!). They will, of course, sound reassuring. But they will ask you to see your GP for consideration of referral. The GP will be aware of the kinds of problems that will or won't be accepted by insurance companies in general.
Generally, you should have choice of consultant, despite certain insurance companies pushing you to see 'cheaper' consultants.
There will be a claim form to fill in AFTER you see the specialist, for which all GPs are entitled to charge £30 for, as it is a private service. This is because it is a responsibility to sign such a form, and there are often problems arising from claims.
