Archway medical uses Language Line to provide interpreting services in more than 200 languages and dialects. Please inform the receptionist when booking an appointment that you might need translation services.
Archway Medical is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one is required. The chaperone may be a family member or friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred. Patients are advised to ask for a chaperone if required, at the time of booking an appointment, if possible, so that arrangements can be made and the appointment is not delayed in any way. The Healthcare Professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
Non NHS fees
Why do I have to pay?
The NHS provides most health services to people free of charge, but there are some exceptions. Sometimes a charge is made because the service is not covered by the NHS, for example Medical Reports for Insurance companies.
When a doctor signs a certificate or report, it is a condition of the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest forms, the doctor might have to read a patients entire medical record.
Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the care of our NHS patients. Our GP’s have a heavy workload, paperwork takes up an increasing amount of time.
Private Letters – £30.00
Private Reports / Forms – £104.00
Supplementary Reports – £27.00
Copies of Health Records – Max £50

Patient Participation Group
Our patients are very important to us and we are continually trying to improve the service our practice provides. We are currently drawing together a number of people to help us form a Patient Participation Group commonly known as PPG. This group will be representative of our patient population and can give us valuable input in how the practice is run. We would like to extend an invitation to you to join. PPG involves patients working with the practice to:
- Contribute to the improvement of services to our patients.
- Improve communication between the practice and our patients.
- Help patients to take more responsibility for their health.
- Provide practice support and help to implement change.
- The PPG would aim to meet quarterly in Archway Medical and we will send you an invitation once details are confirmed.
If you would like to get involved in the PPG please contact us on 020 7263 8380 or request a form at reception.
