Patient Charges Non NHS Services
It has come to our attention that many of our patients are not aware of the additional charges that can be made in regards to some services provided by the practice.
Some administrative services that we offer are not provided by the NHS and we then charge for these services as outlined below. The cost of these services is in line with British Medical Association guidance.
We want to make our patients aware of these charges so they can make an informed decision regarding any paperwork submissions going forward.
Please see below some of the services and the costs outlined below:
Forms e.g. holiday cancellation, occupational questionnaires, Insurance claims, Firearm Licence renewals etc.
Private Sick Note (e.g. For an employer)
Short letter from the Doctor
Detailed letter from the Doctor
Disabled Students Allowance
Full Insurance Reports
Medicals (Pre Employment/HGV/Taxi/Bus)
*Other additional services may also be chargeable depending on the request, please ask in the surgery and a member of the management team will confirm prices*
Any paperwork will only be signed off and completed once payment has been via cheque or cash in reception.
You will be contacted directly once your paperwork is ready for collection.
PLEASE BE AWARE: Charges may be subject to change at the discretion of the management team
We DO NOT offer the following:
-'Fit to fly' Notes
-'Fit to compete/run'notes for marathons, running competitions and other competitive events
-Letters for re housing applications from patients (we will however consider applications directly from landlords/housing associations etc. but there may be a fee
-Direct letters regarding change in benefits (again we will only deal with official paperwork provided by DWP or other relevant agencies)
If you have any queries or questions regarding these charges or services please contact Murdishaw Health Centre directly and a member of the team will do their best to help you.
