Non NHS Services
Why do we charge?
Patients sometimes require services which fall outside of our NHS work, for example letters to non NHS agencies (housing, solicitors, etc), signing passports, letters regarding holiday cancellation, etc.
We get hundreds of such requests every year, each of which requires time from the doctor, receptionist, and secretaries. None of this work is reimbursed by the NHS and it would simply not be viable to do all this work for free. To waive the fee on an individual basis would be unfair to those who do pay.
There are set fees for these services (below) and we will require payment before we do the work. This is by cash only, except for the Ropewalks site which has a card machine.
In order to avoid this cost, it may be worth considering whether a GP letter is actually necessary.
