The NHS provides health care free of charge to most people and there are no prescription charges in Scotland. The NHS does not, however, cover certain services or issue certain drugs on NHS prescriptions and therefore charges may be incurred for these services.
For example, Kingussie Medical Practice charges NHS patients for the following services:
• Medical examinations for employment or sport
• Private sick notes
• Insurance forms
• Some travel vaccinations
• Private prescriptions
A list of charges is available below and from reception, however, this list is not exhaustive and may be subject to change without notice as GPs are increasingly asked to become involved in a variety of non-medical tasks. Our charges reflect national averages wherever possible.
Sometimes, GPs are asked, with their patients’ permission, to perform these tasks by, for example, prospective employers or insurance companies who need truthful and accurate information. We try to respond to these requests as promptly as possible but often the response will require taking ample time to read through patient notes in order to answer specific questions.
It is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that GPs only sign what they know to be true. So in order to complete, or even just to sign, a very simple form, the doctor may have to thoroughly check your medical record to ensure absolute accuracy. The charge to you is a reflection of the time taken to check the information requested and/or the degree of responsibility entailed in signing the document.
