*** Indicates minimum fee. Actual charge will depend on complexity of the work.

Please ask at reception for other items of work not listed. We will contact you if the requested work is more complex and costly to complete. We may ask for payment before the work is undertaken. ID will be requested on collecting the documentation.These fees are for guidance only and are subject to change without notice.Payment is preferred by card, but cash and cheques accepted.

These are standard fees and there is no exception to paying them for items of private work. However, there may be another way your need can be met with a lesser fee, or in some instances with no fee.

  • For example:
  • HGV medicals: these can be done by a clinician who is not your own GP – a Google search will bring up local options which are often much cheaper than we are able to provide them.
  • Single page letter: You may be asking for a letter to confirm something that is in your medical records. It is worth checking with the organisation that requires this information whether they would accept you showing them your medical records via the NHS App (for example, to prove you are on a certain medication, or that you had a GP appointment on a certain date). Alternatively, if you do not have online access to your medical records, we are able to print a copy of a letter, consultation, or your repeat medication list on request for you to collect – we can stamp it with the surgery stamp too if needed (for free).
  • Detailed written report and opinion: you may find an Occupational Health organisation can do this much cheaper than we are able to provide.

We are happy to discuss with you whether there is a cheaper or free way we can provide the information you need, please just ask the Secretaries. Please do not ask if we can reduce or waive the fees stated for the private work though, as there are no exceptions.
