Another busy morning over at Priory Medical Centre, the team have a full coil clinic alongside our normal Saturday morning surgery sessions. We offer pre-booked evening and weekend appointments to ensure working age women have access to important services such as contraception and smear tests. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion
Fees for Private Letters/Forms
Medical certificates are a private services and therefore have to be completed in a GPs own time, usually outside of their paid NHS working hours. We set our fees with reference to the British Medical Association guidance on private fees.
"When your doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms, they may have to check your entire medical record (some of which may not be accessible on a computer or on site). Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor with the General Medical Council (the doctors' regulatory body) or even the Police."
