Non NHS Services
Private Work Fees
Fees are only incurred for services not covered by the NHS, such as private sick notes, medical insurance claim forms, SV and HGV licence examinations, etc. These are charged at the level recommended by the British Medical Association.
If you have a form that needs completing by the GP; ensure that you have correctly completed and signed the consent section prior to handing it to us. If we do not have this information it will delay completion.
Request a letter from the GP
Outside agencies can request supporting letters from a GP. This may be details of your medical problems to support a benefit or housing application. It could be that your place of work would like some details of recent treatment or you may need a letter for travel purposes.
We require any requests for supporting letters in writing with details of exactly what information is required. Hand your request to the Care Navigation Team at the ground floor reception desk.
Please note requests take up to 10 working days to process. We are unable to issue supporting letters for sporting events such as sky diving or deep sea diving.
It is standard NHS practice to charge for the completion of forms. The fee varies depending on what type of form it is. Fees can be paid for at the reception desk with either cash or a cheque – made payable to Readesmoor Medical Group Practice.
