Non-NHS Services

Most examinations and reports for insurance and employment purposes, HGV, PSV, Black Cab and PCO licences, BUPA/PPP claim forms, private medical certificates, countersigning of passport applications, other claim forms and certain letters etc are not paid for by the National Health Service. You will be charged a fee for these services accordingly, in line with those recommended by the British Medical Association. The practice can only accept cash for any non-NHS sevices provided.

Such examinations usually take about half an hour or so, and the Doctor will need to test a specimen of urine as part of the procedure. If you make an appointment for a private examination but fail to keep it then you will be charged a fee of half the full cost of the examination or report. For HGV, Black Cab and PCO examinations, the fee is £85.
