What we charge for

Charges for non-NHS services

There are some services that are not available on the NHS – or only in very limited circumstances, for instance cosmetic procedures, some advanced dermatology procedures, osteopathy.

GPs can set up private practices to provide these services although they must not be treating their practices’ registered patients.

GP practices also are able to charge for certain administration, medical and clinical services. These are services not covered by the NHS contract the practice hold with NHS England.

Below you will find a list of chargeable services that are offered from Chiswick Health Practice – please be aware that this list is not exhaustive and if you are unsure if the administration, clinical service you require is not listed then please call 0208 630 1600 or email [email protected] the practice to enquire if your specific request is chargeable.
