The NHS provides most healthcare and healthcare services free of charge to UK residents, but there are some exceptions.
We also undertake some work not covered by the NHS including HGV and Taxi Medicals, legal and insurance reports, certificates, etc. A list of fees for such work is displayed in reception.
GPs themselves have to cover operational & running costs- buildings, equipment, heating, lighting, maintenance, Insurance, staff etc. Therefore professional fees charged must reflect a contribution to these costs as well as professional time.
Individual practices decide how much to charge for non NHS services. There are no standard charges and ‘price fixing’ between practices is not allowed.
