Anything that needs to be signed by a GP is classed as private work; this is because it is done in the GP’s own time and not during surgery hours. This work has to be paid for. There is a price list in reception by the front desk.
E.g. Insurance Forms ( from £25), Holiday Cancellations (£55), Ofsted Report (£30), Private Prescriptions (£15), Private Sick Notes (£50), any general letter required from the GP (based on the time frame, from £25)
When leaving a form for completion please make sure we have a contact telephone number and that we know which GP is to complete the form. These forms are generally ready for collection within 7 days.
We offer private medicals (eg for HGV/PSV) at competitive rates (£90). Prior to your appointment you will need to obtain an eye test from your Optician and bring the form with you to your appointment.
We can do DNA testing by prior arrangement through a Solicitor (£55 per test). You do not have to be a registered patient at this Surgery for Private Medicals or DNA Testing.
Please telephone Ellie Burns at the Surgery for all enquiries regarding Private Work, Private Medicals or DNA Testing on her direct line 01283 817994.
