Medical Reports & Letters (Non-NHS Work)

Due to sustained pressure and excessive levels of demand on the practice, we will only be undertaking the provision of supporting letters for a limited set of criteria. 

Supplying letters is not considered NHS work and is therefore completed in a doctor’s own time, or is in addition to the work our team does after all NHS work is done.

 

DWP


For the purposes of DWP, we can provide you with a patient summary. A patient summary includes the following:

  • Sensitivities & allergies
  • Latest readings
  • Problems
  • Medication
  • Vaccinations
  • Family history

 

We will NOT provide letters for:

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Employment Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit
  • Blue badges
  • Housing
  • Letters for schools
  • Fit to fly
  • Identification
  • Passport support
  • Visa support
  • Proof of registration

 

We may provide letters for other requests


Requests for supporting letters NOT included in the list above will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

You will be contacted to notify you of the acceptance or refusal of your letter request.

It may take up to 8 weeks to process your request from the date of acceptance.
