- Passport signing
- Confirming documents for proof of identity
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad

Please check the fee payable before booking in or requesting any non-NHS service. Costs can be checked by speaking to the receptionist or the practice manager, although sometimes a GP will need to check exactly what is required before determining the fee. Some medicals require tests which can incur further charges.
If you are a student at one of the colleges we look after, the cost of any medical evidence directly related to your degree is usually already covered by your college: see 'Student Services'
