GP Certification

#1 Post by Polchraine »

My SGC and FAC are due for renewal and this time a GP certification is required. MedCert quote £60+VAT (£72). Emailed my GP practice - and they have come back with just £45 ! Still £45 more than it should be but way better than some.

Hello
I paid £20 flat for mine at the GP practise " We get asked quite a lot for these was the response" and got it the same week.

£50 in SE London, and no strange looks. Was pleasantly surprised that it went so smoothly!

£50 with my GP. Form dropped off on Monday, phone call to pay and collect on Thursday. I think a lot of GPs are waking up to the fact that we have an alternative and are asking:
"Do I really want to have to go through all the bother of compiling medical records and sending them off for free to another doctor who will be paid? Or do I want to match their price and be paid?"
"I don't like my job and I don't think I'm gonna go anymore."

I paid £18 and still feel like I was robbed after seeing the actual form and what needed to be done (12-15 tickboxes)

My GP won't complete the forms, therefore, have to use a third party company.
