Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
We are unable to give any information regarding a patient to a third party without prior verbal or written consent from the patient concerned in respect of the patient requesting that information. This consent will then be entered onto the patient's medical record for future reference. We take patient confidentiality in this practice very seriously, and will not impart any patient information without the patient's verbal or written consent.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges, for example:
Our secretaries cannot produce 'to whom it may concern' letters for leisure park entry, or dispensation letters for relatives to visit from abroad or vocational trips in respect of patient's current health or medication. We can only supply if the person requesting the letter has permission to discuss medical record, a copy of the patient record and nothing more, to which no charge will be made.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales:
Private Insurance Claim Form
Medicals (dependent on form)
All Private Prescriptions
Private Administration Letters
More detailed reports/letters will be charged at a higher rate
Unfortunately our GPs are no longer able to sign passport forms for patients, or do 'FIT TO PARTICIPATE' letters.
Payment can be made either by cash, cheque or debit card (we do not accept credit cards) and will be required on commencement of the vaccine course. Please make cheques payable to Chelsfield Surgery.
We now have a card machine in the surgery for payment of these chargeable services by your debit card. Please ask reception if you wish to use this facility.
PROTOCOL FOR TRAVEL TRIAGE AND TRAVEL VACCINATION APPTS
Remember in post covid, there are travel restrictions to certain destinations so allow more time to get any vaccinations carried out please
The patient presents with a travel assessment form
I HOPE THE ABOVE WILL ASSIST IN INFORMING PATIENTS OF OUR TRAVEL VACCINATION POLICY AND WHAT WE CAN OFFER AND WHAT WE CANNOT.
PATIENTS BE AWARE THAT THE LONGER TIME YOU GIVE US TO ASSESS AND THEN GIVE A TRAVEL VACCINATION APPT THE BETTER.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment AT LEAST 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered by the surgery. Your second appointment needs to be at least one month before you travel to allow the vaccines to give appropriate protection to the patient.
The following vaccines are available free on the NHS for travel purposes:Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Polio, Tetanus, Diptheria and Hep A/B combined. Hep B is normally chargeable to patients unless it is required for occupational health grounds, but we have decided not to charge our patients for this vaccine.
However, YELLOW FEVER, RABIES AND JAPANESE ENCEP are not available under the NHS and will have to be sourced privately. We are not an authorised YELLOW FEVER CENTRE (nearest one to surgery is Green Street Green Medical Centre
Malaria Prescriptions are available as a private prescription (£20) and the medication will have to be paid for at the chemist.
therefore a charge will be made to the surgery as below:
Course of 3 vaccines
non-chargeable to our patients
There is a prescription charge (£20), and a charge for the
medication to the pharmacy direct
£20.00 plus cost of medication

SCRIVENS HEARING SERVICES
Did you know that you can self-refer to your local NHS physiotherapy service?
We are trialling a new way for you to see a physiotherapist. If you are 16 years or older, you can now self-refer to physiotherapy for: muscle or joint pain; back or neck pain; sports injuries and sprains and strains. It's exactly the same NHS service, but without the need for a GP appointment first. You can still see your GP to be referred, but self-referral aims to get you seen by a physiotherapist more quickly and should save your GP time.
Call 01689 88 77 10 to self-refer, or ask at Reception.
Enter all or part of your postcode in the box below and click one of the buttons
to find those services that are local to you.
