Specialist & Hospital Care
If you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, the GP may ask you where and when you would like to go. We are able to make a number of hospital appointments through an electronic system called Choose & Book. The aim of this system is to offer you a choice of hospitals and to book an appointment directly at the time of referral.
If you have decided to attend a private consultation, you will need to collect your referral letter from the surgery. If possible, please allow 48 hours for the letter to be typed. Please note that any medication which is prescribed by the consultant as a result of this may be issued on the Private Prescription. This means that the cost of the drugs plus any administration fee will need to be met in full by yourself until we have written confirmation that your care has been transferred to the NHS.
Non NHS Services & Charges
Charges will be made for certain services which are not covered by the NHS. Examples of these items include private sick notes, employment medicals, travel drugs and vaccinations. There is an up to date list of charges displayed in reception.
The practice is VAT registered and VAT will be charged as appropriate. VAT No 878 6472 59.
