Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract private fees. Examples include the following:
- Insurance claim forms
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
For any other private item of service, please contact the practice and ask our Reception Manager, Medical Secretaries or Practice Manager.
Firearms Certificate - Medical Assessment
Shirley Health Partnership will not be able to supply medical information relating to the purpose of a medical assessment for assessing individuals for suitability for issuing them with a firearms certificate. This refusal is based on the application seeking an opinion on matters falling outside the medical expertise of a General Practitioner (GP), namely an assessment of behavioural and personality disorders, which is a specialist area of medicine. Where access to a firearm is a professional requirement – such as for gamekeepers and farmers please contact your Doctor in the first instance to discuss how a medical assessment can be accessed.
