Private Work and Charges

The National Health Service provides most health care to most people free of charge, but there are exceptions: prescription charges have existed since 1951 and there are a number of other services for which fees are charged.

The Governments contract with GP’s covers medical services to NHS patients, including the provision of on going medical treatment. In recent years, however, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work.

The fee will reflect both the doctors’ time to carry out the service outside of clinical hours and the doctors professional opinion. It may also include the cost of nursing, secretarial support, stationery and consumables.

The services shown in the word document below are NOT provided under the NHS contract and the following fees will be charged.
