Patients often ask doctors to write letters, complete and sign medical forms or supply medical information to third parties. This work is not covered by the NHS contract and classed as Private work. This is completed in the doctor's own time. Doctors are entitled to charge for providing this service.

A fee may be charged for the following services:-
