Reports / Letters / Forms
Medical examinations for special purposes such as driving medicals, pre-employment, insurance medicals etc can be arranged by appointment. Please ring for an appointment which will be outside of usual clinic times. This is a private service and a charge will be made for the service which must be paid on the day of the medical examination.
Certain requests are made for reports, letters, forms etc. which do not come under the NHS and are therefore chargeable. A current list of charges is displayed in reception.
It is our policy that clinicians do not provide such letters unless the organisation in question (eg. housing Association, Immigration Office) has written specifically to the Practice with a request for information.
If you still wish to proceed with your request then the following process should be followed:
- All requests must be put in writing to the Practice
- To maximise clinical time our clinicians will not be able to respond to ad hoc requests for support letters during surgery. Letters and administrative tasks are normally completed outside of clinical time.
- If the request is deemed appropriate please note that these services are not covered under your NHS entitlement so you will be charged a reasonable fee for the service. Also please allow 10 working days.
