Non NHS Fees Explained

It is important to understand that GPs are not employed by the NHS but are self-employed and they have to cover their costs - staff, buildings, heating, lighting, materials etc - in the same way as any small business. The NHS pays the GP a fee for these costs whilst they are providing NHS services however they do not pay them for non NHS work.

This means that GPs have to charge a reasonable fee to provide non NHS services such as insurance reports, HGV medicals, travel vaccinations, any statement of fact ect.
