(SPIRE) Scottish Primary Care Information Resource 

NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.

Private Non-NHS Services


scope_apple_heartNot everyone is entitled to free NHS services. In such cases you will be treated as a private patient and will be charged appropriately. For further information please speak to one of our receptionists who will be happy to help you.

In addition, some medical services are also not included within the NHS and a fee is therefore payable. Such services include private medical examinations, insurance claim forms, BUPA/PPP or similar claim form verification, school fee and holiday insurance certificates, accident and sickness certificates for insurance purposes, and other letters to outside organisations.

Medication required for travel abroad, including certain vaccinations, is not available under the NHS but can be provided privately by the nurses at the practice, chargeable at the current rates. The practice may also charge patients for the administration of a private vaccine.

A full list of non-NHS services and costs is displayed at reception and in our waiting areas. Full payment is required before any services are provided.  We regret we do not accept payment by credit or debit card.  Payment can be accepted in cash or cheque only.

Why do GPs sometimes need to charge fees? An explanation is supplied by the British Medical Association (BMA) -
