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 (eg holiday cancellation)
  • Letters for taking medication abroad
  • Fit to fly forms
  • Certain travel vaccines
  • Private sick notes
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Fit to do charity event (eg cycling, running, parachute jump)
  • Reports for health clubs to certify that patients are fit to exercise
  • Adoption medicals

Sometimes we will charge institutions for non-NHS work:

  • Medical reports for an insurance company
  • Some reports for the DSS/Benefits Agency
  • Examinations of local authority employees
  • Review of driving license for DVLA
