Private Medicals & Reports

The practice offers appointments for private medicals (e.g. employment, HGV Licence) - please tell the receptionist when you telephone for an appointment as this usually requires a 30 min appointment. Please confirm current private fees in advance when telephoning.

GPs complete many insurance forms, including critical illness insurance, life insurance, cancellation of holidays etc, and miscellaneous requests including fitness for military training and DVLA reports. We need your signed consent before we can complete these requests. These can take a long time to do, depending on the complexity of the medical history of the applicant and the size of the medical case notes we need to review. We aim to do these as quickly as possible but our clinical and NHS responsibilities will always take priority. We will usually complete these sorts of reports within 2 weeks.

It is your right to access your medical records. We are happy to provide copies of medical notes or test results, however, we do need the request in writing for our own records as this can sometimes be a lengthy process. We have a "request access to medical notes" form that we normally ask patients to complete. We do helpfully have this form available online - please fill in the form and drop in at the front desk. Please note we are permitted 30 days from the point of receiving the form to complete this request.

We are increasingly asked for doctor's letters or notes for students or schoolchildren absent from college/school, or to support patients in various requests including extension of deadlines etc - please bear in mind that this uses GP clinical and secretarial time which is non-NHS and you may therefore be charged a small fee.



Your GP is entitled to charge a fee for anything deemed to be non-NHS work. Pleases ask at reception if you are unsure whether you will have to pay for a particular service by your GP.
