Private Medical Services

Non NHS Work

We receive many requests from patients for reports, letters and certificates e.g. private insurance claim forms, reports for solicitors, housing etc.

Whilst our GPs have always done their best to assist patients with the completion of forms, they are not required to do non-NHS work. The Government’s contract with GPs covers medical services to NHS patients but not non-NHS work.

In light of the current national problems associated with getting GP appointments we feel it necessary to prioritise NHS work and for this reason will be unable to provide private medical services until further notice.

We thank you for your understanding.
