We cannot provide “fit to….fly/partake in certain activity” letters. This is because we are not insured to do this. We can provide letters for airlines stating patients’ medical conditions/pregnancy stage etc but will not comment on fitness. We will do letters if requested for sporting events but will not comment on fitness, simply providing past medical history and current medical conditions. We would normally recommend – if people need more detail than this – that they contact a travel clinic or a private sports’ medicine specialist. We do not complete Firearms forms. We also will not fill in forms for work which would be better dealt with by occupational health. We are unable to countersign passport forms for UK passports as they require too much personal information about person countersigning. We will consider signing other passport forms if they do not require this information and if we have known the applicant for more than 2 years. If you have any queries about whether we will or will not fill out certain forms/write certain letters please speak to the receptionists who will pass on these queries to the doctor.
