Non NHS Services

Private Work Fees

 Services not available on the NHS - Private Examinations

While NHS services are provided free of charge to patients, there are some services that command a fee as they are not available or funded by the NHS; these services are referred to as non-NHS services.

GPs do not have to carry out non-NHS work on behalf of their patients.Their priority will always be the provision of safe and effective care to their patients, funded by the NHS.

GPs will undertake non-NHS funded work outside routine working hours. Therefore, the fees charged by the organisation contribute to the costs associated with delivering the services required in order to meet patient need
