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 fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and by using our online Contact the Practice form, our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
To view our non-NHS work fees, please visit our Non-NHS Work Fees page.
Method of Payment
We accept cash and cheques only. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Poplars Surgery’ unless advised otherwise by the receptionist or doctor.
Payment must be made upon making the request.
Non-NHS work is charged in line with British Medical Association Guidelines.
If you require further information specifically relating to fees charged for Non NHS services, please ask at reception in the first instance.
All above services are purely at the individual GPs discretion.
We require 4 week’s notice although we do try and complete such requests sooner.
Where a patient has an urgent request, this should always be explained to the receptionist who will note the request, however it is not always possible to process these faster since more clinically urgent NHS work will always take precedent.
