It is unfortunate that not all of our services are covered by the NHS and require us to charge a private fee.

Increasingly we are asked to provide letters, reports or certificates on behalf of patients to third parties such as insurance companies or employers, to ‘confirm’ that a patient has had a medical intervention (This is only ever provided with the appropriate consent from the patient).

In order to cover the cost of administering this request (secretarial time to type the report/certificate/letter), checking the appropriateness of the request and the doctors time to compose the letter etc. we do need to charge a fee. We aim to keep our charges reasonable, whilst endeavouring to deal with your requests in a timely manner.

Please bear in mind that these are services over and above the day to day priority of providing NHS care.
