Non NHS Services

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

Sometimes the charge is made to cover some of the cost of treatment, for example dental fees. In other cases, it is because the service is not covered by the NHS, for example, providing copies of health records or producing medical reports for insurance companies, solicitors and employers.

Please note that our GPs will do their very utmost to assist patients with private work that is given to them. However, there is no obligation on them to do it (with the exception of paperwork relating to jury service). Usually your GP will try their hardest to accommodate all requests, but they have the right to refuse.
