Certain types of medical certificates, medical examinations or information for third parties requested by patients are not provided free under the NHS. Details of fees are available at reception. Please note you will be asked to leave a £10 deposit when requesting non NHS services.
Sometimes employers ask their employees to obtain medical certificates from the doctor during their first week of absence. You are allowed to complete a self-certification for the first week and there is no contractual obligation placed on the NHS doctors to certify such absence. Therefore, if such a sick note is required, a charge will be made for the issue of a private sickness certificate.
