The government's contract with GPs covers medical services to NHS patients. In recent years, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work. Sometimes the only reason that GPs are asked is because they are in a position of trust in the community, or because an insurance company or employer wants to be sure that information provided is true and accurate. Reports should be completed and returned within twenty working days from receipt of pre-payment.
Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge their NHS patients are:

Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the NHS medical care of his/her patients. GPs are very busy with the clinical care of patients and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of their time.
Unfortunately in the past we have completed reports and forms before payment has been made, but have sadly found there to be too many occasions when the doctor has given up the time to do the work, but the fee has not been forthcoming. The receptionists have been asked to collect the fee before the report or form can be completed. There will be no exceptions.
If you have any queries relating to the progress of your request please contact the secretaries on the following numbers:
Sharon: 01992 566543 Leah: 01992 566617 Joanne: 01992 566542 Sandra: 01992 566544

The appointment will include a risk assessment and vaccinations will be administered on the day if needed. Further information can be found on the Fit for Travel website: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
It is important to make your initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel as some vaccinations need more than one dose in a course. Vaccinations should be completed at least 2 weeks before travelling to allow maximum protection.
