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
- Passport signing
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
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.
- Please see attached the Budbrooke Medical Centre fees list 2020, these are fees that are not covered by the NHS contract, these include medical reports, insurance forms, letters to schools and so on.
You are entitled to have relevant medical notes free of charge but if you require a particular letter or report signed by a doctor that attracts a charge.
Writing these reports or letters will incur significant legal liability. Producing them also takes more time than you realise as we have to check all relevant notes so please be aware of this if they are time specific.
