NON NHS MEDICAL CERTIFCATES, REPORTS AND FORMS
A number of services are non-NHS and therefore chargeable. Your doctor will inform you at the time of request whether a fee is payable. Examples would be certificates your holiday cancellation, private references or letters. Please enquire at Reception for the scales of charges or call the Audit Team on 01202 411704 for further advice. Payment is always required in advance for any non-NHS services.
Please note all patients are able to self-certify for up to seven days. Any medical certificate issued by a GP is a legal document. They may not be post-dated or issued in advance. However they may be backdated, for example to provide continuous cover over a weekend.
