We are an NHS GP service but do offer a private service for medical needs not covered by the NHS. Most medical reports are done on this basis and we are able to do these for people whether they are registered with the practice or not.
We also offer a service to local business where staff may wish to see a doctor privately during their working day wihout the inconvenience of travelling to their own GP. Please speak to the receptionists or practice manager if you wish to know more about this.
Please note however that patients seen on a private basis are not eligible for an NHS prescription and will have to pay for the true costs of the medications when dispensed by the chemist.
The majority of procedures, consultations and services carried out at this surgery are paid for by the NHS. However, where additional servies are provided, we are required to pass on the specific cost to patients. The following list is not exhaustive, but details the most frequently raised fees. Where other treatments carry a fee we will advise you in advance.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have a legal right to access all of your health records including those held by your GP. If you wish to request access to the records held by the practice please contact our reception staff and enquire direct. Please follow the link here for more information on accessing your records, obtaining copies and the fees charged.
