The GPs are often asked to fill out medical claim forms, forms that require a GP signature, passport forms, insurance forms, photocopy medical notes and perform medicals for patients. There is a minimum wait of 8 weeks for a form to be completed.
This work is non NHS work and requires the GPs to complete the paperwork outside of normal surgery hours.
As this is non NHS work, there is a charge for specific forms completed. If you need your identity confirmed, eg passport form signed, the doctor signing will have to have known you for at least 2 years
