Non NHS Services
Private Medical Services
Non-registered patients can be seen privately by the Doctors within
Fairmore Medical Practice. If you would like a private appointment
(minimum 30 minutes), please ask reception for details.
Certain services provided are not covered by the NHS and you will be
asked to pay a fee for a non-NHS procedure. Please see the notice
at the reception desk for a full list of fees.
Examples of services where you will be charged a fee include:
• Pre-Employment Medicals
• Medical Report / Examination for fitness to drive
• Private Certificates (eg private sick notes)
• Insurance Claim Forms
• Some Holiday Vaccinations such as Yellow Fever and Meningitis
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any queries about fees.
NHS sick notes are only provided for Social Security reasons to
cover absences of greater than 6 days off work. Self-certification
forms should be used for situations where you have been off work for
less than seven days.
Any sick notes can only be given if you have attended the surgery
during the time of your illness.
