Private Work Fees

We offer a number of non-NHS services which will incur a fee to be paid directly to the surgery. This fee is to compensate the time that the clinician inputs into this additional work as non-NHS work is completed outside of their core NHS time.

Examples of non-NHS services include – fitness to fly letters, requests for printed medical records and work carried out for legal or insurance claims.

Prices will vary depending on the type of work being requested and the cost of which is decided by the clinician, taking into account the amount of time required to process

Private Medicals

The doctors at the surgery can carry out private medicals such as HGV fitness medicals, pilot medicals and medicals required during the application process to adopt a child. These are by appointment only and require a different type of appointment to a standard consultation appointment. We kindly request that any associated paperwork that needs completing be brought to the surgery prior to your appointment for the doctor to review before you are seen.

To arrange a private medical or enquire about the fees, please contact reception.

New guidance has been issued for the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

This follows further reviews by the independent regulator, the MHRA, and the Commission for Human Medicines, of a very small number of people in the UK who have developed a rare blood-clotting condition since having the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

The MHRA and Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations have emphasised that the risk of this condition is extremely small and that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people. They have recommended that:

  • Everyone who has had the AstraZeneca vaccine should still have a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, irrespective of age, unless they suffered any serious side effects after their first vaccination.
  • People aged 30 and over or who have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease should still be offered the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.  The benefits in protecting them against the serious consequences of COVID-19 outweigh any risk of this rare condition.
  • People aged 18-29 who do not have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease will be offered an alternative Covid-19 vaccine where available.  (This has been recommended as a precaution as people under 30 are at less risk from Covid-19 and not because they are considered to be at particular risk of developing the rare blood clot.)
  • People under 30 can still choose to have the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine if this will mean they can be protected more quickly and they have been made aware of the guidance.
