Under their NHS contract, the doctors are not obliged to complete certain forms such as passport applications, insurance forms, holiday cancellations, or provide certain letters e.g. private sick notes, fitness for travel, etc. Therefore these forms / letters attract a fee, which is approved by the British Medical Association (BMA). The person requesting the completion of thes forms is responsible for the payment of this fee.
Similarly our doctors will undertake medical examinations for special purposes such as insurance, HGV and Taxi Licence, adoption, child minding, employment etc. Special appointments may be made for these and a fee approved by the BMA again will be payable. Please ask our receptionists for details of these fees and appointments.
As a general rule at Billinge Medical Practice, we charge rates that are much lower than those suggested by the BMA.
