Non-NHS Work

Private Work Fees

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

  • Medicals and forms for employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc)
  • Medical reports and examinations for insurance companies and employers
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Passport signing
  • Private prescriptions
  • Private sick notes
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Holiday cancellation forms
  • To whom it may concern letters
  • Forms, certificates and medicals

Why is there a fee?

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and we will be happy to advise you about them or you can view them here . Please note that fees are reviewed periodically.

If you have a form that you need completing or countersigning by a GP please read it carefully and complete and sign any sections required by you before bringing it to the surgery marked for the attention of the Communications Team. We ask that you allow up to 21 days for the process to be completed. Paperwork is released on receipt of payment which can be made by cash, cheque (made payable to Widcombe Surgery) or bank transfer.
