The GPs at Firrhill Medical Centre are self employed and have a contract with the NHS to undertake specific clinical and administrative work. We are often asked to undertake work which is not included in our NHS contract. This work will be privately charged and undertaken in our own time and at our own discretion. We are not able to undertake this work during NHS appointment time. Please note we do not countersign driving licence applications, passport applications, provide health club fitness to exercise certificates, letters to support housing applications, letters of support regarding benefits disputes .
We would ask you to sign the attached form to confirm that you understand the charges and that you wish us to go ahead. For pro rata payments the doctor will attempt to estimate your costs in advance. You will be personally responsible for ensuring that payment is made prior to collection of the completed report.
