Focus on Private Practice

We are often asked advice about what services GPs can charge their registered patients for.

 

The BMA have a very comprehensive Focus on Private Practice (July 2010) document which refers to the GMS regulations and provides advice about what you can and cannot charge patients for.

 

There is also comprehensive information on the 'Fees' page of the BMA's website which we draw your attention to.
