A number of factors affect how much it costs to see a doctor, another healthcare professional in the surgery or to have some tests.  Some things like immunisations for children are free and there is generally a reduced rate for anyone under 14, under 18 or over 65. You may also find that it may cost more to see your doctor on a Saturday than Monday to Friday.  Visitors to the country can expect to pay more than residents.   Costs vary between surgeries so it is best to check out how much you can expect to be charged with your surgery or local PHO website. Details are often displayed on waiting room notice boards.
