Our Doctors carry out a wide range of medical reports and investigations at the request of patients either directly or by other agencies such as solicitors, banks, local authorities etc. on their behalf.
There are charges for this type of work because it does not form part of the NHS and is therefore classed as private income. The amount of work required varies greatly and has to be reflected in the level of fees, but we always follow any guidelines recommended by the British Medical Association and monitor our charges regularly to ensure that they are fair and reflect the amount of work required by the Doctors and administration staff involved.
We would like to remind patients that what often appears to be a simple private form only requiring a Doctor’s signature is more complex as the doctor will need to review the patient’s full medical records before signing, as this is their professional responsibility.
