Non-NHS Services

The National Health Service (NHS) provides most health care to most people. There are exceptions; when the service is not covered by the NHS; examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge their NHS patients are: accident/sickness insurance certificates, certain travel vaccinations and private medical insurance reports. Additionally GP’s can also charge other institutions for non-NHS services, these can include: medical reports for an insurance company, some reports for the DSS/Benefits Agency and examinations of company employees

It is important to understand that GPs are not employed by the NHS; they are self-employed and operate as any other small business. You will be charged a fee which will reflect both the doctors time to carry out the service and their professional opinion. It may also include the cost of staff time and stationery and consumables.

What can be charged for?
