This on my local GP's website; £100 for a template letter is disgusting rip off. ohmy.gif
That's £400 for a family of four sad.gif

"The Downland Practice will no longer be doing Covid-19 Fit to Fly letters for patients. This work is classed as non-NHS work and is chargeable at £100.00 per letter. Patients who are with the Downland Practice who require to have a Covid-19 Fit to Fly letter will need to contact their airline provider in the first instance"

Ye gods and tiny swimming things, a DOCTOR??? Thought they were a profession we used to employ, but disappeared at the onset of SARS, and is now on the CITES list.
I agree it is an affront to our integrity that these people, who are in our employ, yes we really do pay their wages, can "demand" additional payment from us for, as to which you allude, to simply sign a pre-formed letter, but this is what you get when you elect a government that takes its eye off the ball.
The world, at least this corner of it, really has lost the plot.
