Outpatient Clinics are held within our practices. There are Consultant led clinics for Orthopaedics and Dermatology. In addition we now provide diagnostic services by way of non-obstetric ultrasound, audiology hearing assessment and aid fitting as well as a GP led Dermatology clinic and MSK/Pain clinic.
Most of the services offered by the surgery are free under the NHS. But some services are not covered under the NHS and for those your GP, like other professionals, can charge a fee. Examples include the following:
The fee will reflect both the doctor's time to carry out the service and the doctor's professional opinion. It may also include the cost of secretarial support and stationary.
This work is not undertaken during routine appointments and we would request that all enquiries with regard to work of this nature are made at reception. Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the doctor away from the medical care of his or her patients. Most doctors have a heavy work load and paperwork takes an increasing amount of their time, so doctors have to undertake this work in their own time in evening or weekends. When a Doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is important that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms the doctor may have to check the patient's entire medical record. Please therefore allow up to 40 days for your report, form etc to be processed, Sheryl Morris is the member of our Administrative team who looks after all such requests to ensure they are completed on time.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales, and are available from reception. Please note that we are only able to accept cash or cheques for payment.
As of Friday 1st February 2019, we will no longer accept requests for letters to the Housing Office.
If you intend to apply for a council house for health reasons, you do not need a GP to write a letter.
The Housing Office will contact the GP if further information is required.
As of Friday 1st February 2019, we will now be charging an upfront, non-refundable fee of £25 for any "To whom it may concern" letters.
Once the letter has been typed, there will be no editing.
As of Monday 11th February 2019, we will no longer accept requests for the following letters:
- PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
- Bus Pass
- Theme Park Fast Pass (to avoid queuing)
- Fit to Box
- Housing Applications
- Jury Service
- Appeal Letters (PIP and DWP)
- Unable to attend/travel DWP Assessments
- Passport Signing
Thank you for your co-operation
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
