Non-NHS Work

Insurance Certificate, Forms, Letters etc.
If you have a form which needs to be signed by the doctor, please leave it with the receptionist. There will be a charge to pay. For most forms there is no need to see the doctor to have them completed; the receptionist will advise you. Please note that due to the high volume of paper work, you should allow two weeks for their completion.

HGV, PSV, and Other Non-NHS Medicals
These require an appointment with the doctor. Please arrange this in good time. A fee as recommended by the BMA will be payable for these examinations. A non-refundable £10 deposit is taken at the time of booking the appointment.

Patients 75 Years And Over

If you are 75 years of age or over, you should be seen annually, either by your doctor, the practice nurse, the district nurse or the health visitor. This can be arranged at the surgery or a home visit will be arranged for our housebound patients.
