Shipston Medical Centre Fees

The National Health Service provides most health care free of charge, but there are exceptions. There are a number of other services for which fees are charged. This is because the service is not covered by NHS funding, for example medical reports for insurance companies, insurance claim forms for referrals to private care and other letters and forms which require the GP to review the patient’s medical record.

The services shown below are not provided under the National Health Service contract and therefore will incur a charge if requested. Many of these services are requested by insurance companies who may or may not cover the cost i.e. a road traffic assessment. Please check with your provider before requesting the service.  If we are asked by a patient to complete such work we will expect the patient to pay any fees, unless we have evidence that a third party has previously committed to meeting the costs.

Please note this list is not exhaustive. If you require a service that is not listed here, that you think may be chargeable, please make an enquiry at reception or through our website.
