You may be asked by various commercial organisations e.g. insurance companies, or by government bodies, e.g. driving authorities, to have a medical examination. This is not a part of the GP's NHS duties and therefore there is a charge for this work.
If you require a medical report for insurance purposes please contact your Insurance Company who will send the appropriate paperwork, with your consent, through to the surgery. Paperwork cannot be completed without your consent.
The surgery will complete the paperwork, where appropriate.
If you sign to say you wish to see the report before returning to Insurance company, you will be notified when completed, so that you can visit the surgery to read it.
There will be a charge for these reports - you should clarify with your insurer who is liable prior to making your request.
In addition to the above, we charge for various other items including letters supporting appeals, private sick notes, and some travel vaccinations. Click the link below to see our current charges.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print off the form and return it to the surgery. Our practice team will then contact you to offer you an appointment.
Travel Risk Assessment Form
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you have already seen a doctor and have been advised to take time off work or feel that you may need an extension, please click on the form below and either bring it to the reception desk or fax it to us. We do not guarantee that the doctor will issue another sick note. It will be processed with either a renewal or suitable instructions from the medical team within 7 days of the request.
Bedminster Family Practice Medical Certificate Request
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
