Clinics and Services
All GP practices are contracted to provide essential services
Subject Access Requests
You can request a copy of your medical records (Subject Access Report) for free; this has a 28-day turnaround from receipt of the request.
The proper role of the GP is the care of patients who are, or believe themselves to be, ill; as a result, certain services are not included on the NHS, such as private certificates for employers, medical examinations for job applications, fitness to drive (HGV/PSV), etc.
When you hand requests to us, please check if a fee will be charged.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and start at £15.00 and increase according to the amount of work involved and responsibility taken.
We do not offer this service on a Monday or a Tuesday (as these are our busiest clinical days).
When requesting access to medical records please be aware that we require this in writing. We have a duty of care to ensure that we are giving the correct records to the correct patient. We will also need at least 7 days notice.
Please Note: We now take card payments at all our surgeries except Skelton; payment is required prior to work being carried out.
HGV/PSV/Taxi/Sport/Pre-employment medical – Price on Application
As a part of medical requirements, we now require a copy of the driver’s latest eye test if they wear glasses or contact lenses. They will need to bring this to their Driver Medical appointment. If they fail to bring this to their appointment, they will not be able to receive their certificate.
The eye test must have been done within the last three months prior to their appointment. We also ask that the driver removes their contact lenses for their appointment, if they wear them.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.
This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Please be aware at times certain vaccinations may be unavailable due to national shortages.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
Booking Your Appointment
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
You may be required to have vaccinations which are not available on the NHS, therefore you will be signposted to
where their team will provide you with more specialist information and services.
