Non-NHS Work

Not all services at the practice are available under the NHS; where patients request non-NHS items or services, a private fee may be payable in accordance with British Medical Association (BMA) guidance and in line with charges applied by other General Practice surgeries.

Fees and charges for these services are shown below which may be payable in advance (we accept cash and card payments only). Any questions in regards to these services, you can contact us on Florence Road Surgery 020 8567 2111.

Please allow up to 20 working days for all requests.

Doctor’s Letter

You may require a doctor’s letter for various reasons e.g. statement of fact or confirmation of medical conditions.

Please make your request in writing via askmyGP, email to [email protected] or by letter and it will be dealt with in the most appropriate way; this may take up to 10 working days to process.

If you are pregnant and require a doctor’s letter as proof of ‘permission to travel’ please be aware that many airlines require your doctor’s letter to be signed within 48 hours of international travel.

Please note that you will not be provided with a doctor’s ‘permission to travel’ letter if you are due in less than 30 days or if your pregnancy is considered high-risk.
