A number of medical examinations, reports, insurance forms and certificates are not available on the NHS, but may be provided by the GPs privately, for a fee. These may be requested via the Reception staff and you will be notified of the relevant charge. While the GP’s endeavour to complete requests within 10 working days, it can sometimes take longer in busy periods and core medical work must take priority.
Although some travel vaccinations are available on the NHS, many are not. Patients travelling abroad are advised to make a travel advice appointment, so that the nurses can advise you of any NHS or non-NHS vaccinations you might need. You will need to return the completed travel form at least 2 days prior to your appointment to give the nurse the opportunity to decide which vaccines you need prior to your appointment. Both types of vaccination are available, although there will be a charge for non-NHS vaccinations.
