Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
- Private letters
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
REQUEST FOR HEPATITIS B IMMUNISATIONS FOR OCCUPATION PURPOSES
GPs do not provide an occupational health service as part of their NHS responsibility nor can they provide the service to you even if it is funded by you if the patient is registered with them.
Under Health and Safety Regulations, your employer has a duty to provide a safe working environment and, therefore, appropriate health advice for those at risk of infection with Hepatitis B. We advise you to contact your employer who will be able to make arrangements with an occupational health provider for the provision of any immunisation which you may require following an appropriate assessment of the risk to which you are exposed.
You may find it helpful to show this section to your employer.
