Worthing Medical Group, like all GP practices, is an independent business that provides most of its
services under contract to the NHS on behalf of its patients. The NHS has strict rules about what it
covers and whilst this is very comprehensive, there are certain exceptions. These exceptions can
be mostly grouped into:
- reports and certificates (occupational health, holiday cancellation, life insurance)
- examinations for licenses, employers or fostering (e.g. HGV, taxi, PCV, diving)
although there are a few other categories.
Fees are paid by the individual or organisation
requesting the service, although sometimes
on display in the surgery. We accept payments
in cash or by card but we no longer accept
