Non NHS Services

Private Work Fees

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms  
  • Vaccination certificates
  • "Get a note from your Doctor/To whom it may concern" type letters

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.

Private Cryotherapy

We no longer are able to offer the cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) service here at Torkard Hill Medical Centre. For those patients who would like to be considered for this treatment and are happy to pay privately there is an option through a Derby based clinic.

There is a private dermatology clinic available at Derby Hospital. This is a consultant led clinic.

Prices are as follows (correct at 2019):

Cryotherapy: £120 for 1-3 lesions, £180 for 4-6 lesions.
Surgery is more, prices start from £365. 

For further information and to book a consultation please contact Derby Hospital on telephone number: 01332 786128 or alternatively you can email

Fit to Fly Letters

We are receiving a number of inappropriate requests for private letters and forms, asking GPs to certify someone is fit to fly. This includes women who are pregnant and travelling.
Unfortunately we are unable to do this.
We will endeavour to do our best to issue a private letter with statement of facts, which most airlines should accept, however if insufficient, you will have to seek a private assessment elsewhere by a suitable healthcare professional.
