Private and Professional Services

The practice provides a number of valuable services to our patients and local companies, which are not included under Primary Medical Services (PMS) within the NHS, for which fees become payable.

For example:

  • Employment Medicals
  • Insurance Reports
  • Driving Licence Medicals

Our fees are charged in line with the recommendations of official bodies such as the British Medical Association (BMA) and we regret that they are therefore non-negotiable.

From 1st May 2007 some of these fees became subject to VAT, which has now been applied to our Fees Tariff (see below).

Staff should advise you of the charge for the service fee payable upon application. Please note that the fee is payable at the time of handing  in the documents.
