516 c327W
Lilley, Peter
General Practitioners: Fees and Charges
To ask the Secretary of State for Health on how many occasions a general practitioner has been found to have charged a patient for medical services which should have been provided free of charge in the last three years.
Department of Health
Burns, Simon
This information is not held centrally. Under the terms of their national health service contract with the local primary care trust, general practitioners (GPs) are prevented from charging their patients a fee for treatment under the contract, or otherwise, except in certain prescribed circumstances. Where a patient is unhappy about a charge being made for any treatment or service provided by their GP, they may raise it through the NHS complaints procedure.
