Insurance Reports, Medicals and other non-NHS work

The National Health Service provides most health care to most people free of charge, but there are exceptions. Sometimes the charge is made because the service is not covered by the NHS, for example, providing copies of health records or producing medical reports for insurance companies.

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.

Examples of non-NHS services for which the practice charges for are:

  • accident/sickness certificates for insurance purposes
  • reports for health clubs to certify that patients are fit to exercise
  • pre-employment medicals, as requested by employers

Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge other institutions are:

  • life assurance and income protection reports for insurance companies
  • reports for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in connection with disability living allowance and attendance allowance
  • medical reports for local authorities in connection with adoption and fostering

We have a poster in our waiting room showing the current charges for this type of work.
