The Government’s contract with GPs covers medical services to NHS patients, including the provision of ongoing medical treatment. In recent years, however, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work and sometimes a charge is made because the service is not covered by the NHS (for example, providing copies of health records or producing medical reports / certificates for insurance purposes).
Whilst our GPs will always attempt to assist patients with the completion of these forms, they are not required to do such non-NHS work. We aim for a turnaround period of 21 days, however, GPs have a very heavy workload and time spent completing these non-NHS forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the medical care of his or her patients, so occasionally this is sometimes a little longer.
