Non N.H.S. Examinations
A fee is payable for these services.
Medical examinations for special purposes, e.g. HGV, PSV, Taxi driver, elderly drivers, pre-employment, insurance medicals, etc., can be arranged by appointment. A fee as recommended by the British Medical Association may be payable for these examinations.
Certificates of Incapacity to Work
In its guide to doctors, the Department of Social Security states that we are not required to issue statements of incapacity to work for periods lasting seven days (including Sunday) or less, or for the first seven days of longer spells. At this practice, we observe the DSS guidelines. To do otherwise would place an unnecessary burden on our appointment system from those people who merely want unnecessary certificates for self-limiting illness. This would be to the detriment of those with a real need to see the doctor.
You may require a private certificate from the Doctor. A fee is chargeable for this.
