Fees for private work

These are the fees you will be asked to pay for work that falls outside of NHS care.  Fees are reviewed regularly and are set in accordance with BMA recommendations and by assessing the estimated time a piece of work will take, along with the potential risk involved.  We reserve the right to adjust the fee payable if a piece of work is in excess of the norm, will take additional time or carries additional risk.

Fees are payable at the time we agree to undertake the work and the work will not be completed until payment has been received.  Payment can be by card or cash at the practice reception desk. BACS details may be provided on request.

Please be aware that we reserve the right to decline any requests for private work if our workload is such that NHS care would be at risk, or we deem the request to be inappropriate or beyond our remit.  If we decline to complete private work, this is non-negotiable but we will endeavour to signpost you to an alternative service to complete your request.
