Non-NHS services

The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions, some vaccination services, medical examinations for insurance companies, employers, adoption agencies, gym memberships, and certain specialised diet plans (this list is not exhaustive). Our fees for these services are available from the secretaries on 01462 832713 or 832714 (available between 8.15am and 3.15pm Monday to Friday).

Please note, we do not provide advice on travel vaccination requirements, or provide prescriptions for malaria (available from pharmacies). The only travel vaccinations on the NHS provided at this practice (where appropriate) are tetanus/diphtheria/polio, typhoid and hepatitis A. Please request a travel sheet from reception at least 6-8 weeks before you travel which explains the system to follow. You can also download our travel vaccines leaflet here.

We do not offer occupational health vaccinations at this practice. Please contact your employer, your employer’s Occupational Health Department, or NHS Plus at www.nhsplus.nhs.uk or the NHS Plus occupational health services at either Bedford Hospital on 01234 792123 or Luton and Dunstable Hospital on 01582 497226.
