Non NHS Charges (updated October 2020)

Not everything your doctor does comes under the provision of the NHS.

NHS care cannot be charged for, but other things you ask your doctor to do have to be paid for, in advance.

This is a list of current charges, as recommended by national agreements between government, the British Medical Association and insurance companies.
