NON NHS WORK
The doctors provide non NHS services, if you require additional services from the doctor (for example medical insurance forms such as PPP/BUPA; medical examinations for insurance companies; driver medical and letter) then a charge will be made. Non NHS work is undertaken at the doctors' discretion.
As doctors are not paid for this work by the NHS, the charge goes towards the running costs of the Practice and in compensating the doctor for his or her professional services. These fees are agreed by the Partners and reviewed annually. The Reception and Secretarial staff have no authority to waive or vary any of these charges.
Payment must be made in advance, or at the time of the service being provided. Letters or forms will not be handed out or sent until payment has been received. Failure to attend or late arrival for an appointment for private treatment may result in a 50% charge of the fee being made.
