Private Fees

We are an NHS practice and do not see private patients. Any work outside our normal NHS contract is chargeable at the standard rates below.

If you have any requirements not mentioned below, please ask at reception.
We shall try our best to complete requests within 10 working days. If it is more urgent please tell the receptionist. You will be phoned or texted when it is ready to collect.

Fees are payable in advance by card (not American Express), cash or cheques (to ‘Willow Tree Family Doctors’). Please ask for a receipt. Failures to attend appointments for private medicals will be charged at half the total fee.

If you write a detailed letter request to us or ask for something special, it will need checking by the doctor before we can process it. Some items requested may not be possible for us to complete.

Non-urgent advice: Please note

British Passport Applications can no longer be accepted due to changes in the rules (sorry, it’s not our fault: doctors are no longer trusted with signing these.

There is a long list of people who are far more trustworthy such as MPs or journalists; you can see the full list here)
