Non-NHS Services

Most examinations and reports for insurance and employment purposes, HGV, PSV, Black Cab and PCO licences, BUPA/PPP claim forms, private medical certificates, countersigning of passport applications, other claim forms and certain letters etc are not paid for by the National Health Service. You will be charged a fee for these services accordingly, in line with those recommended by the British Medical Association.

Such examinations usually take about half an hour or so, and the Doctor will need to test a specimen of urine as part of the procedure. If you make an appointment for a private examination but fail to keep it then you will be charged a fee of half the full cost of the examination or report. For HGV, Black Cab and PCO examinations, the fee is £85.
