NON NHS WORK/PRIVATE MEDICAL FORMS
(Forms or reports such as Private medical insurance claims, holiday cancellations, sickness, accident reports, health declarations & passport/driving licence etc.)
Private work does not take priority over NHS work and we ask
patients to respect this when booking private medicals or when
waiting for paperwork to be completed
It is important to understand that the completion of forms/reports by doctors is NOT core NHS work. Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the medical care of his/her patients. GPs have a heavy workload and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of time. Meeting the needs of patients’ medical problems obviously takes priority.
These forms should be brought to the reception. They will then be given to the doctor for completion. There will be a charge for this, payable on collection of the completed form.
