Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
For further information on private work and charges at Hall Green Health see our Private Fees Document.
HGH offers family planning advice which is free and confidential.
Requests for Medical Certificates for School absence
It is not the responsibility of NHS general practice to provide medical certification for school absence and the policy of this practice is always to refuse such requests.
If for whatever reason you do require a medical report on this child’s condition then please request this formally in writing, enclosing signed parental consent for the release of confidential information. We would advise that we will charge the school a professional fee for this service, in accordance with our contractual regulations.
