Non NHS Services

Private Work Fees

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

The Private Fees 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.

Services Not Provided by GPs

Not Everything Is Available On The NHS

Please be aware that we do not routinely supply, and you should not be asked to supply:

  • Sick-notes for school or college absence
  • Letters in support of housing applications
  • We do not countersign passport applications

(We are able to consider providing a private note for important missed school and college exams and letters for more prolonged absences from school, if requested in writing by the school, with your written consent)

Please also do not book and appointment for support with:

  • DWP or PIP appeals letters

The practice can provide you with a “Brief Report Summary” from your medical record free. This can be organised via our reception staff.

If you need a more detailed report then there is a private charge for this service.

If you have any queries, please discuss at reception - do not book an appointment with your GP. If you consider that you still want any of the above then please put your request in writing and hand to reception.

Here are some links to posters provided by Notts LMC giving further guidance:
