New average fees revealed for private and professional services 2015

The results of the the latest Medeconomics Fees Survey have been analysed and added to the GP Fees Database

Medeconomics surveyed practices across the UK on the rates they charge for 15 commonly requested non-NHS services and a range of travel immunisations, so that all practices can benchmark themselves against the figures.

We received 463 responses to the survey, undertaken during December 2014 and January 2015, with the majority of practices located in England and in urban areas.

The results of the survey have helped us significantly expand the ‘travel’ section of the fees database and we have added new sections on travel immunisations and fitness to travel.

35% of respondents said fees income had decreased

A key finding overall was that 35% of respondents said income from private and professional fees had decreased over the past 12 months.

Some 23% of practices said that they were planning to take steps to increase their earnings from private and professional fees over the coming year.
