Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.


September 2020 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 

Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Fees for non-NHS services

The GMS contract between the NHS and GPs covers most medical services to NHS patients.

In recent years, other organisations have been involving doctors in non medical work. This is often about finding or verifying information contained in a medical record.

Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge their patients; 

  • Private medical insurance reports
  • Holiday cancellation forms
  • Power of Attorney Certificates
  • DVLA fitness to drive assessments
  • Letters requested on behalf of the patient
  • Certain travel vaccinations not available on the NHS
  • Private prescriptions for medication not available on the NHS


Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge other institutions;

  • Medical reports for insurance companies
  • Army medical forms
  • Fostering & Adoption medicals
  • Insurance questionnaires and proposals
  • Employment medicals
  • Firearms licences
