Non NHS Medical Services & Charges
The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions, passport signing and some vaccination services. A List of these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, are displayed in a PDF file available from the link below.
The Identity and Passport Service has changed its policy on identity issues and we have been advised that they will no longer accept a declaration from GP surgeries that an applicant is “a patient” as sufficient proof of the counter-signatory knowing the applicant. For this reason, we will no longer countersign applications for a passport. There is a wide range of people who can now do this for you.
