It is important to understand that many GPs are not employed by the NHS. They are self-employed and they have to cover their own costs. The NHS covers costs for NHS work, but for non-NHS work, the fees charged by GPs contribute towards their costs. The Government’s contract with GPs covers medical services to NHS patients, including the provision of ongoing medical treatment. In recent years, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work. Sometimes the only reason that GPs are asked is because they are in a position of trust in the community, or because an insurance company or employer wants to ensure that information provided to them is true and accurate.
