Fees for Private Letters/Forms

Medical certificates are a private services and therefore have to be completed in a GPs own time, usually outside of their paid NHS working hours. We set our fees with reference to the British Medical Association guidance on private fees.

"When your doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms, they may have to check your entire medical record (some of which may not be accessible on a computer or on site). Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor with the General Medical Council (the doctors' regulatory body) or even the Police."

We do not complete forms that ask for us to confirm a person is fit to complete an activity e.g. sky diving, SCUBA diving, holiday camps, expeditions or marathons. You can access specialist advice regarding these activities/forms from expert clinics (often accessible quickly online).
