Some services provided by the practice are not covered by the NHS therefore you will be asked to pay a fee. A list of our current charges is available from Reception.

The fee is required to be paid prior to the time of the examination.

Payment is by cash or cheque only (cheques payable to Emersons Green Medical Centre).

If you need a doctor to complete and sign a medical report or other form, please note that this takes up to 10 working days.  This is because our doctors have limited time for paperwork, and have to prioritise work related to patients that they have seen in clinics.  Please ask us if you need something more urgently, but we cannot always guarantee a quicker response.
