Some services provided by the practice are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
The practice accepts cash, cheque and card payments for these services.
As this work is generally fitted in by the GPs around their clinical workload, we would normally expect up to 14 calendar days to do the work. With the agreement of the relevant doctor we can sometimes do the work within 48 hours, but this would attract an additional fee on top of the cost of the report. We will try and confirm whether this quick turnaround is possible as soon as possible after your request.
Please see the following link on why GPs sometimes charge for these services.
