Due to the unprecedented demand upon the GPs time we are unable to complete requests for letters regarding holiday insurance. This is not work that is provided by the NHS and our capacity to do any non-NHS work at this time is very limited.
If you are due to travel to an area of high risk of infection where the FCO has advised against all travel you do not need a note from your doctor.
If you have a medical condition which puts you at higher risk of complications from Covid-19 infection (for example cardiovascular disease including high blood pressure and existing respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD) and have decided that you do not want to travel, the surgery can provide a print-out of a brief medical summary which lists your medical conditions. However, we are unable to write bespoke letters or assess individual’s suitability for travel.
Please let us know if you would like a copy of your medical summary but please be aware that this may take longer than usual.
We thank you for your support and consideration at this time.
