Health Checks

If you are aged between 16 - 75 you can request a health check every three years. If you are over 75 years old you are entitled to a check every year.

Shingles Vaccination

All patients aged 70/71 and 78/79 are eligible for a shingles vaccination please enquire at the reception.

Non NHS Services

Certain services provided by your doctor are not covered by the NHS and you will therefore be asked to pay a fee in line with the recommendation of the British Medical Association.

These include:

  • Pre-employment medicals
  • Private medicals
  • Insurance medicals
  • Fitness to drive medicals
  • HGV/PSV medicals
  • Insurance/Travel certificates
  • Private certificates

If you have any queries about fees or any other private medical services please ask at reception.

Fit for Work Certificate

It is not necessary to have a Doctors certificate until you have been absent continuously from work for 7 days including weekends. After 3 days you must obtain a self-certificate(SC2) from your employer. If your illness continues for more than 7 days then under the NHS your GP can issue an official statement (Med 3) "fit to work certificate" to confirm your illness.
