Private Fees - 2023 /2024

Private requests and limitations

As an NHS practice, we follow NHS protocols and national guidelines in line with our GP contract and this means that there are limitations and restrictions to what we can provide as a NHS GP practice. Some prescriptions and some investigations are not available from NHS GP services.

We appreciate that some patients choose to see a private provider. If general practices receive requests from private providers to arrange tests or investigations, it is important to note that complying with such requests – regardless of the GPs management and treatment of the patient – is outside the scope of NHS primary medical services. We understand that this can be frustrating but there are certain medications, tests and monitoring which are not supported on the NHS and are outside of our NHS contract. If a private provider suggests a medication for you, then they are obliged to prescribe this for you. We cannot routinely convert these private prescriptions to NHS prescriptions.

If a private provider suggests some tests and investigations for you, then they are obliged to arrange this for you. It is not appropriate to pass these requests back to NHS GP services. This includes private screening tests. Private providers have an obligation to provide a written letter to the patient’s registered GP with any clinical findings. If a private consultation or test discovers an ongoing medical condition, we understand that some patients may then wish to transfer their care back to the NHS for ongoing treatment. The private letters detailing the clinical  information about your medical problem or test findings routinely take up to 2 weeks to arrive and get processed with the GP. We are happy to discuss these letters with patients and arrange NHS referral to specialists where needed for ongoing advice and management back in the NHS.
