Why do GPs sometimes charge?

Some services are not covered by the NHS such as insurance reports and examinations.

Prescription charges have existed since 1951.

GPs are not employed by the NHS, they are self-employed and have to cover their costs such as heating, lighting, staffing like any small business. The NHS covers these costs for NHS work but for non NHS work GPs have to charge a fee to cover these costs.

The BMA (British Medical Association) produces lists of suggested fees GPs can charge for non-NHS work.
