REFERRALS FOR PATIENTS GOING PRIVATELY
This leaflet is to explain the practice’s policy for provision of referral to private providers outside the NHS.
Most private medical insurers will require a referral from a GP to facilitate a private consultation, it is also good practice if you are self-funding to provide a referral to outline the problem and any tests performed so far.
Unfortunately the administration time of these referrals can sometimes be varied depending on workload commitments.
This has led the practice to develop a policy of administering referrals according to clinical priority rather than the provider used. This means that if there is a large number of NHS referrals to process urgently (such as cancer referrals) these must be processed before any routine private referrals.
We therefore ask you when you request a private referral not to book any appointments for routine matters for less than a week from agreeing referral with the GP and preferably wait until you have the referral letter before booking the appointment.
Your referral will be available to take to the appointment from reception.

FEES AND CHARGES
Effective 23 October 2017
Not all services at the practice are available under the NHS.
GPs do not have to carry out non-NHS work on behalf of their patients. Time spent completing non-NHS services such as insurance forms, preparing reports and writing letters takes the GP away from the medical care of his/her patients. Most GPs already have a very heavy NHS workload and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of their time.
When a GP signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the medical register that they only sign what they know to be true. The GP may have to check a patient’s entire medical record even if it is just a signature that is required. Please therefore be aware that non-NHS services can take up to 14 working days for the GP to complete and in some cases longer.
NB Lasting Power of Attorney documents: The GP may or may not be able to complete these. Please be prepared to leave the documentation with the surgery for the GP to review, with the possibility that it could be returned having not been completed.Where patients request non-NHS items or services, a private fee may be payable.
Please contact the practice for further information regarding fees and charges.
