The NHS provides most health care free of charge but as GPs are generally independent contractors and not employed directly by the government they charge for certain services not covered by their NHS contract. These fees help cover staff costs and the costs of maintaining the building.

Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge their own registered patients include:

·  Insurance reports for accident or sickness,

·  fitness to fly or take part in activities,

·  pre-employment medicals, HGV medicals,

Examples of non-NHS services for which GPs can charge other institutions:

·  Life assurance or income protection reports,

·  some reports for the department of work and pensions,and DVLA,

·  reports for local authorities eg fostering or adoption.

It may seem that GPs are charging just for their signature but it is a condition of staying on the Medical Register that they sign only what they know to be true, which may involve studying the patient’s whole medical record.
