appointments1Please note that Private / Non NHS work is at the GP's discretion. We no longer do medicals or statements of fitness for activities or extreme sports. Examples of the medicals we no longer do are:- Tall Ships, Marathons, Diving, Sky Diving. There are a number of local private services that have been set up to carry out this non NHS work. Unfortunately were are unable to recommend any specific service. If in doubt please contact Dawn Ward or Lisa Appaya and they will be happy to advise.

Certain services such as private sick certificates, “To Whom It May Concern” letters, Medical Reports/full examinations are not covered by the NHS and a charge will be made for these services.

Paperwork will be passed to the GP to advise if this can be completed by the Surgery. Your account will need to be settled before work commences.  Payment is made by cash, cheque or BACS. We regret we do not have electronic debit card facilities. We will be happy to give you a receipt.
