Medeconomics surveyed practices across the UK on the fees they charge for a number of travel-related services, including immunisations, fitness to travel, and cancellation claims.

The results of the survey have now been added to the GP Fees Database to help practices to benchmark the amount they are charging for these services.

The GP Fees Database helps practices to identify opportunities to boost non-NHS income, check recommended rates for private work and identify the average fee charged by practices for work with no set or recommended rate.

More than 500 practices surveyed

Medeconomics received 502 responses to the survey, which was undertaken in June 2019. The majority of practices were in England.

The following fees have now been updated and are available to practices with a subscription to Medeconomics:
