The Medeconomics GP Fees Database is divided into two sections, NHS income and private and professional fees.
The A to Z of private and professional fees will tell you whether there is a nationally-agreed fee, a BMA-suggested fee or whether the fee is negotiable for any given service.
Increasing practice income
We have also surveyed practices across the UK to find out what they charge for many of the fees that are negotiable. The Database includes details of the average fee charged across the UK, plus the average rate in each of the four countries, helping you to benchmark your practice's rates and decide whether to adjust them.
The database is also intended as a resource for practices to identify extra earnings sources - including some you might have overlooked in the past. If the practice markets itself to local companies to provide some of these services, for instance, you may earn worthwhile sums to help shore up practice profits.
The database explains the fee for each private and professional service including who pays it - the patient or a third party such as an insurer or government body - and the purpose of the examination, report or sessional work.
With services you do not currently provide, if armed with information about what the work involves, you may find that you can fill a gap in the marketplace by providing it. This is why many of the fees listings contain online links to more details about the service and/or the organisations that require it.
